Computational wind engineering (CWE) is a specialized sub-set of the engineering application of computational fluid dynamics. The increasing availability of commercial CFD codes, combined with increasing computing power, is both a blessing and a curse to this application. It is a blessing in allowing for CWE to develop into a strong field within wind engineering, and a curse in that it has led and will continue to lead to the use of CFD for CWE without the required basic knowledge. "The judicial presumption of innocence does not hold in CFD. CFD results are wrong, until proven otherwise." Blocken, 2014.
