G.I.G. — A Flexible User-Interface for CFD-Code Configuration Data

  • Uwe Tapper
Part of the Notes on Numerical Fluid Mechanics and Multidisciplinary Design (NNFM) book series (NNFM, volume 89)


A possible solution for the growing demand for graphical user interfaces for simulation codes is shown. The situation at the German Aerospace Center is described and a set of resulting requirements for a flexible, configurable software system is collected. The main idea of separating the description of parameters and the editor is briefly summarized. Finally the current development status is presented, including some screenshots.
