CFD General Notation System
This User's Guide (originally published as NASA/TM-2001-211236, October 2001) has been written to aid users in the implementation of CGNS (CFD General Notation System) . It is intended as a tutorial: light in content, but heavy in examples, advice and guidelines.
All examples of source code discussed in the User's Guide are available in a gzip'ed tar file from the CGNS site at SourceForge , as a complement to the document itself. We strongly recommend that you download these examples.
The PDF form of the A User's Guide to CGNS (562K, 81 pages) was created using pdfTeX and the hyperref package, and is designed to be printed. The PDF file may be viewed and/or printed using a variety of freely available software packages, including Acrobat Reader , GhostScript , and xpdf . The HTML form is designed for interactive use, and the contents are listed below.
The complete User's Guide to CGNS in HTML form is also available for installation on a local system. This is a gzip'ed tar file (215K, 451K gunzip'ed), and may be downloaded by clicking on the link while holding down the shift key, assuming your browser supports this capability. A dialogue box will appear for you to specify the directory and file name. To unpack the contents, do
gunzip -c user.tar.gz | tar xvf -The files will be extracted and stored in the directory user. Point your browser to the local file user/index.html to display the User's Guide to CGNS home page. Note that this does not include the PDF form of the manual. Note also that some links, to other manuals, etc., may not work.
