Abstract : This document describes the implementation of a graphical user interface (GUI) for an existing computational fluid dynamics (CED) code. Development of the GUI at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) was undertaken at the request of the U.S. Army Missile Research Development and Engineering Center (MRDEC) and is funded by ARL as part of a Technology Program Annex (TPA) agreement. As a starting point for this effort, the zonal Euler solver (or ZEUS) CFD code was chosen by MRDEC to be incorporated into the GUI environment. This document serves as an introduction to the GUI and explains some of the design philosophy. The document also serves as a brief user's guide; however, it is not meant to replace the original user's guides/reports written by the original authors of the ZEUS code.
