Abstract : This memorandum reviews the major developments in computational fluid dynamics. The present and future capabilities of numerical simulations are assessed to determine the demands that they will place on available computer power. The impact that these developments will have on the use of computational fluid dynamics at ARL is considered together with their implications for the provision of new computers at ARL.
