In the paper, the author traces the increasing effectiveness of computer methods developed at the Naval Ship Research and Development Center for solving some boundary value problems dealing with transport phenomena. First, the solution of neutron diffusion problems as applied to the design of nuclear reactors will be discussed. Secondly, programs for studying the behavior of moving viscous fluids will be described. In both cases finite-difference methods are used.
