To be used effectively in a design environment, numerical tools must accommodate very practical constraints, particularly time deadlines, the need to address multiple design goals and the requirement to minimize risk. This paper advocates the accelerated development of design systems to augment the use of computational physics and to help designers achieve greater efficiency and scope. The role of numerical codes employing general connectivity meshes is stressed. Examples are taken from a design system which is currently being developed for use with tetrahedral volume grids and triangular surface meshes.
