CFD use is spreading fast to all industrial and non-industrial sectors. The progress in the science of Computational fluid Dynamics is not keeping pace with its own technological progress, particularly with reference to applications. Mathematical modeling of fluid flows in most cases is an art which depends on intuition. To gain more credibility in the complex computations of flows in modern machinery, it is not just sufficient to debate about validation, but is becoming increasingly necessary to at least start debating about establishing standards for development, distribution and use of CFD codes. Otherwise, not only the nickname of Colorful Fluid Dynamics might become more permanent, but the rate of growth of the technology of Computational Fluid Dynamics and the development of it’s underlying science might be hampered. This paper discusses the problems in application of CFD for industrial flows and suggests possible solutions and the need for unified action by the CFD community including the concept of ‘Global Benchmarking’.
