A practical finite element-based solution procedure for high-speed inviscid compressible flow problems is described. The method provides time-accurate solutions to the coompressible Euler equations, and is computationally more efficient than the one-step Taylor-Galerkin approach and better suited for implementation on the modern generation of vector computers. The method is coupled to an adaptive mesh refinement process that enables steady state solutions of improved quality to be obtained.
