The "Wind-US User's Guide" describes the operation and use of Wind-US, including: a basic tutorial; the physical and numerical models that are used; the boundary conditions; monitoring convergence; the files that are read and/or written; parallel execution; a complete list of input keywords and test options; and where to go for additional help. It is based on the "NASTD User's Guide," written by R. H. Bush, M. Mani, T. R. Michal, and W. W. Romer of The Boeing Company.

The PDF form of the Wind-US User's Guide (3.3M, 398 pages) was created using pdfTeX external link and the hyperref external link 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 external link, GhostScript external link, and xpdf external link. The HTML form is designed for interactive use, and the contents are listed below.
