Accretion on to black holes powers some of the most luminous objects in the universe. In this thesis I present a series of works aimed at constraining the properties of black hole accretion in a variety of astrophysical systems. Numerical methods are vital for studying the multi-scale and non-linear physics of these systems. First I introduce
