A three-dimensional space-marching algorithm using an unstructured discretization is proposed. The method utilizes a two-dimensional unstructured grid generator to construct grids in a crossflow plane while maintaining structure in the marching direction. The spatial discretization is obtained by applying a characteristic-based, upwind, finite volume scheme for the solution of the Euler equations. Solutions are presented for several different geometries comparing the results with existing numerical techniques and experiment.
