ReadPlot3D

DESCRIPTION

ReadPlot3D is a DataScribe module which reads in a pair of three dimensional PLOT3D files consisting of the coordinate mapping information (grid xyz file) and the nodal data (solution q file). The radio box widget allows the user to select one of the following data: density, momentum x, momentum y, momentum z, and energy. The result is sent out as a lattice. This module supports single grid xyz and solution q file.

For more information concerning the PLOT3D format see:

Walatka, P., Buning, P., Pierce, L., Elson, P., "PLOT3D User's Manual", NASA Technical Memorandum 101067, March 1990.
