In this study, a software that is utilized after the pre-design phase of the missile design is presented. This software consists of computational domain modeller and multi-block structured mesh generator. Geometrical design variables of the missile used in the software are based on Missile DATCOM and the presented software eliminates the time consumed between the preliminary design and the CFD analysis by automating the computational domain generation. In order to model the different orientations of the fins during the flight, fins and the body of the missile are brought together by the use of overset mesh method which eliminates the time for modifying and deforming the mesh during the solution time. Mesh generation is automated and the user only need to enter the basic geometric variables of the missile which can be obtained from Missile DATCOM software.
