This study aims to develop general programs, irrespective of the governing equations, schemes, grid structures, and vascular models, for numerical analyses of bio-heat and mass transfer. We have used the CFSV-model proposed on the basis that every equation discretized for numerical analysis of three-dimensional continuous media is no other than the relation among quantities on elements such as cells, faces, sides, and vertices, to generate the data file with the kind, category, serial number of the every tissue element, and the junction relation with its ambient elements. Since these data can be referred at ease in a program with some functions, it is effective to produce the program. The element data has been applied to a simple vascular model, and it can be useful for the numerical calculation.
