The principal interest of industrial computational fluid dynamics consists mainly in the capability to obtain at a lower cost, valuable information on some physical phenomena. Numerical simulations of industrial processes enable to test virtually some configurations, from both qualitative and quantitative points of view, and thus to evaluate and/or discriminate different designs according to pre-determined criteria. A few examples of industrial CFD applications are proposed, associated to their specific context. They illustrate the variety of fluid problems that the numerical tools can treat. They enhance also the added value of the codes for physical phenomena understanding or process optimisation and for studies, for which the use of CFD is generally positive, or even necessary.
