    Abstract

    This report describes the User Defined Function Lidar_3D used to interrogate FLUENT data files to provide the relevant data for the MathCAD LiDAR simulation program. The UDF was written in the C programming language and compiled using Microsoft visual studio 2008. This report contains a listing of the program (version 1.03). This report contains a description of the methodology required to compile the UDF so that it may be called by an "execute on demand" call from FLUENT. The report also includes a description of the input and output data file formats.
