ZEN Interface

Solver ZEN
Type of mesh multiblock
Dimension 3D

The interface creates the following files for the Zonal Euler Navier-Stokes Flow Solver, which is a in-house code from CIRA (Centro Italiano Ricerche Aerospaziali):

File GRDFOR     (topology and geometry of the multiblock domain)
File BCDAT      (boundary conditions)
File SELECT     (selection of visiualistion data)

Write input

The user can write the ZEN files after saving the project. The translator writes the ZEN input files in the specified directory.

Limitations

The ZEN Interface accepts only multiblock structured grids. Multiblock structured grids with degenerated blocks are also supported.
