GridTool: A Tool for Structured and Unstructured Grid Generation
GridTool is an interactive program for grid/geometry applications .
Most grid generation programs represent geometry by a set of structured
points which is not consistent with the Computer Aided Design (CAD)
representation. The purpose of GridTool is to bridge the gap between
the CAD and the grid generation systems. GridTool is designed primary
for unstructured grid generation systems. Currently, GridTool supports
and FELISA systems, and it can be easily extended to support
other unstructured grid generation systems.
GridTool is part of Tetrahedral Unstructured Software System
TetrUSS is an unstructured-grid flow analysis and design computational
fluid dynamic (CFD) software system developed at NASA Langley Research
Center. The goal is to provide a validated capability to non-CFD
expert users for performing rapid aerodynamic analysis and design of
complex configurations. Capabilities include rapid grid generation and
inviscid flow analysis, and an emerging Navier-Stokes viscous flow
