Abstract: This paper presents a new computational method for the calculation of discontinuous solutions of hyperbolic systems of conservation laws, which deal effectively with both shock and contact discontinuities. The method consists of two stages: in the first stage a standard finite-difference scheme is hybridized with a nonoscillatory first order accurate method to provide for the monotonic variation of the solution near discontinuities, and in the second stage artificial compression is applied to sharpen transitions at discontinuities. This modification of a standard finite-difference method results in a scheme which preserves the order of truncation error of the original method and yet yields a sharp and oscillation free transition for both shocks and contact discontinuities. The modification can be easily implemented in existing computer codes.
