Almost all CFD codes are written in FORTRAN 77 or its earlier variants. This practice incurred many limitations, such as simple built-in data types, and limited ability to create user-defined data types, obviously resulting in difficult implementation of complex algorithms. Another limitation is that these codes could be error-prone and difficult to understand, which therefore leads to difficult code maintenance or upgrades.
