Advanced mathematical methods offer opportunities for an in‐depth analysis, optimization and examination of various options to increase the overall efficiency of the thermal energy facilities. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) technique, as a powerful engineering tool, has been extensively used for modelling and investigation of operational behaviour of thermal energy systems. Advanced CFD techniques help researchers in performing research work efficiently and in interpretation of test results. The improved solver technologies and outstanding modelling possibilities also support teaching of numerical analysis and application fundamentals for a broad range of disciplines within the thermal, process and environmental engineering. In this work, the capabilities of CFD technique are demonstrated with practical examples in connection with certain specific issues: realistic representation of the object geometry, visualisation of the processes occurring in the analysed object, comparison between the different turbulence modelling approaches, the combustion process analysis at different levels depending on the specific needs, evaluation of the impact of the applied thermal radiation model on the results and analysis of solar collectors' efficiency in different operating conditions.
