Hi All
F3D used finite differences method (FDM) in CFD analysis and others commercial CFD codes used either finite volume method (FVM) or finite element method (FEM) in solving CFD problem. so, would like to know if anyone can share with me the pro's and con's of each method in CFD analysis? Thanks.

there is a little explanation on flow3d website, in the CFD101 section.
Pay attention that F3D uses finite differences method, but coupling it with some additional information (like the FAVOR) that makes it slightly different from what you can find in literature.
