Coordinate and Sensitivity Calculator for Multi-disciplinary Design Optimization
The Coordinate and Sensitivity Calculator for Multi-disciplinary
Design Optimization CSCMDO is a general purpose multi-block
three-dimensional volume grid generator which is suitable for
Multi-disciplinary Design Optimization. The code is timely, robust,
automated, and written in ANSI "C" for platform independence.
Algebraic techniques are used to generate and/or modify block face
and volume grids to reflect geometric changes resulting from design
optimization. Volume grids are generated/modified in a batch
environment and controlled via an ASCII user
This allows the code to be incorporated directly into the design loop.
Volume grids have been successfully generated/modified for a wide
variety of configurations.
Please note that CSCMDO does not provide a direct means of edge meshing
and as such, the code is not capable of generating a grid from
"scratch" . It does however offer modification and quality improvement
capabilities for existing domain discretizations.
CSCMDO is being supported and
developed by the
NASA Langley Research Center.
