CFD General Notation System (CGNS)

    CGNS has developed into a popular standard for the storage and exchange of CFD data in the aerospace community and 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.

    I'll be looking into this for more details.

    The short course is offered during the 46th AIAA Aerospace Sciences Meeting and Exhibit in Reno, Nevada, January 7 - 10, 2008.

    "Effective Use of the CFD General Notation System (CGNS) for Commercial and Research Applications."
    Date: 5th – 6th Jan 2008.
    Instructors: Chris Rumsey, Thomas Hauser, Ken Alabi, Marc Poinot, and Bruce Wedan.

    I guess the plot3d format we've all been using isn't going to cut it anymore?

    It's too bad my abstract was rejected at the last minute for that conference.

    I am new to this forum. Since the discussion was about CGNS, I thought of making a relevant request .I am looking for a working sample C program that can read and write data from an unstructured grid file in CGNS Format. Can anyone help me out with problem please. Will really appreciate the help.
