ok, conventional method= Wind tunnel + CFD analysis.

his new method= full CFD analysis.

I prefer the conventional method although it will cost you more. its not that bad to fully use CFD, but it is risky.
it's got like hundreds of cooficients that you need to put in the calculation. usually the engineers will get this from wind tunnel testing, but you need to get it from a common chart(or something) if you go full CFD. and you cannot make a mistake selecting the cooficients involve.

its cheaper but with a risk.
