Over the last two decades or so, great progress has been achieved in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and related disciplines. It is possible to periodically find in this body of work interesting and useful unification of prior ideas and algorithms. This paper summarizes, from the author’s perspective, several such unification themes and points out additional challenges and opportunities. It is hoped that this will serve as a background for renewed focus to achieve further progress in the field.
