This paper provides an overview of some of the CFD methods developed by the Team for Advanced Flow Simulation and Modeling (T(Black star)AFSM) []. The paper also provides many examples of three-dimensional flow simulations carried out with these CFD methods and advanced parallel supercomputers. The methods and tools described in this paper include: stabilized finite element formulations; formulations for flows with moving boundaries and interfaces; mesh update methods; iterative solution techniques for large nonlinear equation systems; and parallel implementation of these methods. Our target is to be able to address effectively certain classes of flow simulation problems. These include: unsteady flows with interfaces; fluid-object interactions; fluid-structure interactions; airdrop systems; aerodynamics of complex shapes; and contaminant dispersion.
