This paper presents a perspective on verification and validation of computational fluid dynamics tools for analysis and design. It identifies principal sources of error due to approximations in the physical model, numerical discretization, and implementation. Issues in algorithm design and tradeoffs between modeling accuracy and computational costs are discussed. Computational examples are drawn from the authors' work.
