As can be seen from the results presented in this paper, three-dimensional and time-dependent boundary layer flows can be calculated in a reasonable amount of time with the current generation of computers. However, serious individual problems with the initial conditions and uniqueness of the numerical methods still exist, and of course there is the ever-present problem of very few time-dependent and three-dimensional inviscid flow solutions.
