DTF Interface

Type of mesh multiblock structured and unstructured
Dimension 2D and 3D


The translator creates the grid data in the format of CFDRC's Data Tranfer Facility (DTF library version 7.2). It supports both structured and unstructured grids in 2- and 3-D.  The grid file can be written in single (default) or double precision.

The .DTF file contains the following information:

Creating the DTF input files

The translator writes the DTF grid file using the selected unstructured or structured mesh, the boundary conditions file and,  if structured, the topology file. To create the DTF file, "Select solver" → CFDRC-DTF in the "Output" menu. After clicking "Write input " you can specify the following options for the DTF interface: The interface generates the DTF mesh file located in the project directory.

Defining Boundary and Volume Conditions

To define boundary and volume condition click on the "BC" icon in the "Output" menu. Supported boundary condition types for solver CFDRC-DTF are:

Volume Boundary faces
Fluid Symmetry
Solid Inlet
Blocked Outlet
