This chapter deals with the numerical methods that will be used for the flow solvers. As in most commercial and industrial packages, unstructured meshes with automatic mesh generation and adaptation are used together with finite volume or finite element discretization for these complex geometries. The iterative solvers and the flux functions for upwinding are also presented. Main algorithms for compressible and incompressible fluid flow calculations are given.

Keywords:   finite volume, finite element, mesh adaptation, mesh generation, upwinding
