This section contains figures illustrating the nodal structure of a CGNS database. An example ADF file hierarchy is shown below, but without any internal detail of the individual nodes. Just below the ADF root node is a CGNSLibraryVersion_t node, and one or more CGNSBase_t nodes. Each CGNSBase_t node represents the root node of a CGNS database.
The remaining figures present all the nodes defined in the SIDS that have child nodes. An example illustrating the general layout of these figures is shown below.
At the top of each figure is a single parent node (with a tan background), and below it are boxes (with gray backgrounds) containing descriptions of the various child nodes.
In the parent's box are links to the figures corresponding to its parents in turn. Each child's "Label:" entry is a link to the definition of that data structure in the SIDS. If a child node has children of its own, the "Child Nodes:" entry is a link to the figure showing that node as a parent, with its children. To save space, nodes that were shown in a previous figure are abbreviated, with a link to that figure in the "See:" entry.
The following list contains links to the remaining figures.
