X axis Y axis Z axis Body based Rotations will be about the body X,Y,Z axes. Screen based Rotations will be about the screen horixontal and vertical axes. Translate == Translate === After selecting the direction to translate, the user will be prompted for the distance to translate in that direction. X axis Y axis Z axis Scale The user will be prompted for a scale factor relative to the display size of the first grid plane displayed. Reset view Resets to the default view point and scale. Save view Allows the user to save the current view point information in a file. Restore view Allows the user to restore the view point information previously saved in a file.

OPEN FILE(S) A file must be opened before any other operation and the program will initially come up in this menu. The file can have been created on any machine, but must have the appropriate extension. Common File MDA FDA (FANSI) PDA ZDF->Common File ZDF->MDA ZDF Coupling Fil SLP Trace File FLOW file (cfl)
GLOBAL OPTIONS SET GLOBL SCALE SET GRID UNITS ADD ZN FRM FILE Appends a zone from another file to the current file.
GRID GENERATION PICK ZONE The program will display a list of zones in the functional menu area. MODIFY ZONE SAVE ZONE Save the current zone at any time during the grid generation process. This writes over the corresponding zone in the file. It is not necessary for the user to remember to save the zone because if the user tries to exit from the grid generation section or read in another zone, the program prompts for whether the current zone should be saved. RESTORE ZONE Restore the last version of the zone that has been saved in the file. This overwrites the current version of the zone in memory. LOAD FROM FILE Replaces the current zone with a zone from another file. TRANSLATE ZONE Translate the physical coordinates of the entire zone. The user is prompted for DX, DY, and DZ. ROTATE ZONE Rotate the physical coordinates of the entire zone. The user is prompted for rotation axis and angle. SCALE ZONE Scale the physical coordinates of the entire zone. The user is prompted for individual scale factors for each coordinate direction, SX, SY, and SZ. RE-MAP ZONE Changes the I,J,K and/or X,Y,Z mapping of a zone. AXI-SYM SETUP NO AXI-SYM X-Y PLANE Y-Z PLANE X-Z PLANE CURRENT SETTING INTERIOR GRID The interior grid option operates only on interior points. The boundaries are not changed. In addition, the interior grid generation functions operate on the currently defined subset. The default subset is the entire zone, but can be changed by picking on the Subregion definition in the lower-right corner of the screen. ALGEBRAIC Algebraic interpolation may be performed over the entire zone or on a user-defined subregion of the zone. LINEAR IN I Perform straight line interpolation between opposite boundaries with spacing distributions interpolated from the boundaries. LINEAR IN J LINEAR IN K JK TRANSFINITE Perform transfinite interpolation in the designated plane for each such plane in selected region. IK TRANSFINITE IJ TRANSFINITE IJK TRANSFINITE Perform 3D transfinite interpolation from the boundaries of the specified region. = STACK MODE = FULL 3D I PLANES J PLANES K PLANES ELLIPTIC =FORCE FUN MEN= == 2D AND 3D == LAPLACE ( = 0 ) No forcing function.
