Input Grid

The computational grid for CABARET is a Gambit(Fluent) generated unstructured linear hexahedral mesh. This is described in an ASCII file which consists of; the total number of apexes(NAPEX), cells(NCELL), sides(NSIDE) and boundary sets(NBSETS); a list of the sides for each cell - GEMCELLSIDE; a list of the cell connectivity for each side - GEMSIDECELL; a list of the cartesian vertices - APEX; a list of the vertex connectivity for each cell - GEMCELLAPEX; a list of the sides for each boundary set - IBOUND. For a 105 cell mesh, this file is around 33MB and for a $ 5.12\times10^7$ cell mesh, around 17GB.
