Recent developments in computational methods for heat transfer and fluid flow are reviewed. Emphasis is given to the treatment of convection and diffusion and solution of flow equations. Also, some interesting applications of the methods are mentioned. Whereas many attractive methods have been formulated in recent years, there exists no clear consensus about a preferred method. Careful and controlled evaluations of different methods are required. This and other tasks for future research are outlined.
