A new finite element method is proposed for the numerical solution of a class of initial-boundary value problems for first-order hyperbolic systems in one space dimension. An application of our procedure to a system modeling gas flow in a pipe is discussed. Asymptotic error estimates are derived in the ${L^2}$ norm in space.
