Advances in the computational aerodynamics field have provided the aerospace community with tools to analyze complex configurations in a wide variety of flight regimes. Attempts to apply these analysis tools to specific problems, however, have indicated that the process of geometry generation and manipulation is often the most time consuming part of a computational aerodynamic analysis. Recognizing the need for rapid geometric modeling, the Interactive Graphics for Geometry Generation Program I3G was developed under Air Force contract F33615-84-C-3001 and the Visual Interactive Rapid Grid Generation Program VIRGO was later developed by Lt. David Amdahl of WRDCFIMM. These programs have been modified, expanded and combined, over the past several years into a tool capable of performing very complex manipulations of geometric configurations. I3GVIRGO, is designed to aid the engineer in the generation, manipulation, and output of computational aerodynamic models for a variety of flow solvers.
