Predictive CFD, Past, Present, and Future

*talk will be given by Dr. Freddie Witherden The talk will review the evolution of CFD over the last four decades, including the transition to progressively higher fidelity models and progressively more complex geometry. Industrial applications of CFD will be discussed with regard both to its predictive capability and human and computational costs. There is now a need to move beyond the current plateau of Reynolds averaged Navier Stobes (RANS) simulations towards large eddy simulations (LES). The final part of the talk will present some current developments of high order methods using unstructured meshes which offer a route to achieving this goal.
