In this volume, designed for engineers and scientists working in the area of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), experts offer assessments of the capabilities of CFD, highlight some fundamental issues and barriers, and propose novel approaches to overcome these problems. They also offer avenues for research in traditional and non-traditional disciplines. The scope of the papers ranges from the scholarly to the practical. The book emphasizes the problems facing CFD and focuses on non-traditional applications of CFD techniques. There have been several significant developments in CFD since the last workshop held in 1990 and this book brings together the developments in a single unified volume.
