CFD vs. traditional methods?

I am writing an architecture dissertation just now and a small part of it briefly covers CFD. I have read that CFD was used to study air flow in a potential fire in a building.. Is this possible using traditional mathematical methods or limited to computer simulation?

Are there architecture related aspects that can be analysed with only CFD - and not with a physical model?...

I appreciated any responses.

One of the better ones seems to be at
