The VGM (The Volume Grid Manipulator) code is a grid manipulation tool, used to alter, adapt, smooth, and even generate surface and volume grids based on existing 2D and 3D data. It is designed to bridge the gaps between CAD systems, Grid Generation packages and a deliverable/usable high fidelity surface or volume grid to be used for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations. This code eliminates the need to generate specific computer codes to do a range of simple to complex alterations on a grid. The VGM code does this by providing a Grid Manipulation Language (VGML), to execute various simple commands controlled by associated arguments.
