Fluid flow problems in which interfaces between different materials are present are most easily modelled by using a Lagrangian mesh. However, in many 2-D applications distortion of the Lagrangian mesh makes such a method impractical. This paper describes a 2-D, time-dependent, compressible, finite difference Eulerian method which has been developed to simulate such problems.
