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 trade-offs between modelling accuracy and computational costs are discussed in detail. Computational examples are drawn from the authors work in several applications areas.
