    This paper gives an overview of the computational13; requirement for solving CFD problems. The paper also describes two examples, typical of two different types of approximation of Navier-Stokes equations, carried out on a Supercomputer. The first problem deals with the full potential transonic flow computations around a wing in 'a body fitted coordinate system, while the, second deals with vortex flow computation on a low aspect ratio wing based on.Euler equation using finite volume and Runge-Kutta time stepping approaches.
