Vortex Methods.
Is there any good review of CFD methods, with new and future trends, comparasion between them, etc...? Recently I am considering working with Vortex Methods, but first I would like to know its advantages and disadvantages compared to traditional methods and why are n't they more used... I know that Boundary condition is an issue, but not a problem... Does anyone have a clue?

Also how is turbulence dealt with in vortex methods?

Thanks for your help, luiz

For general review of vortex methods you can look for

Sarpkaya T. Computational methods with vortices - The 1988 Freeman scholar lecture. Journal of Fluids Engineering, no. 111, 1989, pp. 5-52
