USA Interface

Solver USA
Type of mesh multiblock mesh
Dimension 3D


The translator creates grid files and boundary condition file for USA from a structured mesh.

Creating the USA Files

The translator writes the USA files using structured domain files and the corresponding topology file. To create the USA input files, select the translator "USA" in the "Output" menu from the ICEM CFD/CAE Manager. After clicking "Write output" you can specify options for the USA interface:
The interface generates for each block a grid file and one boundary condition dataset located in the project directory:

Defining Boundary Conditions for USA

The following boundary conditions are supported for this interface:

Interfaces between blocks are handled such that a BC Number 500 is assigned to interfaces between blocks in the same family, and a BC Number of 300 is assigned to interfaces between blocks in different families.
