Effective Use of the CFD General Notation System (CGNS) for Commercial and Research Applications
CFD General Notation System (CGNS) has developed into a popular standard for the storage and exchange of CFD data in the aerospace community. This course is ideal for commercial and research CFD users involved in the development of CFD tools including mesh generators, solvers, or post- processors.
Date: January 5, 2005 - January 6, 2005
Location: Grand Sierra Hotel, Reno, Nevada, United States

Organizer: AIAA
Type of Event: Course, International

CFD General Notation System (CGNS) is now an AIAA
Recommended Practice. The use of this standard allows a
compatible application or user to communicate CFD setup and
information to or from other third-party CFD tools including
mesh generators, solvers, and post-processors. This course
will introduce the participants to CGNS, the data format,
the standard, and the software implementing the standard.
Additionally participants will be provided comprehensive
information for integrating CGNS into their applications.
Examples will include implementation scenarios in sample
academic or commercial applications and cover CFD data
including structured and unstructured grids, solution data,
governing equations, and boundary conditions. Participants
will also have the opportunity to introduce their own sample
applications for guidance on how to integrate and make use
of CGNS for data storage or interchange.

Key Topics:
    * Introduction to CGNS - standard and software
    * CGNS Standard - The Standard Interface Data Structure
      (SIDS) Implementing CGNS - The Mid-Level Library
    * The CGNS Data Format
    * Example CGNS Implementation
    * Sample applications
