Validation of CRUNCH CFD® for problems of relevance to modeling coupled VSTOL-Ship Airwake flow fields is presented. The basic numerical framework consists of an edge based multi-element unstructured Navier-Stokes solver. The governing equations are solved using an upwind biased MUSCL scheme and an implicit scheme is used for time marching. Validation of the spatial and temporal aspects of the numerical framework are presented here, with a special emphasis on bluff body shedding problems as these are of particular relevance to the VSTOL-Ship airwake problem. Results from simulations of several unit problems are presented.
