Announcements CFD General Notation System (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 Effective Use of CGNS Course will introduce the participants to CGNS, the data format, the standard, and the software implementing the standard.

Sponsor CFD Review

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.

Participants will be provided comprehensive information for integrating CGNS into their applications. Examples will include implementation scenarios in sample academic or commercial applications and cover CFD data including structured and unstructured grids, solution data, governing equations, and boundary conditions. Participants will also have the opportunity to introduce their own sample applications for guidance on how to integrate and make use of CGNS for data storage or interchange.

Key Topics

  • Introduction to CGNS - standard and software
  • CGNS Standard Components
    • The Standard Interface Data Structure (SIDS)
    • The Mid-Level Library
    • Low-Level Storage (ADF, HDF5)
  • The CGNS Data Format
  • Example CGNS Implementation
  • Sample applications

Who Should Attend
This course is ideal for commercial and research CFD users involved in the development of CFD tools including mesh generators, solvers, or post-processors. The course is also applicable to users who make extensive use of multiple CFD tools. Attendees should bring a laptop.
