The present work investigates how unsupervised machine learning methods can be applied to detect complex phenomena in flow simulation data. For this purpose, a variational autoencoder (VAE) is implemented. It allows for non-linear dimensionality reduction of a data set, resulting in the so-called feature space. Suitable parameters for a VAE are determined, and a number of algorithms for finding clusters in the feature space are introduced and tested. The resulting clusters are investigated in a 3D plotting software, showing that the model can detect complex phenomena, e.g., a shock or a shear layer.
