The application of Harten's method to quasi-one-dimensional nozzle problems and to a two-dimensional shock-reflection problem resulted in high shock resolution steady-state numerical solutions. Applications of the postprocessor method and the modified implicit method for steady-state calculations show encouraging results for one-dimensional problems; however, testing in two dimensions is not complete and further investigation is needed for efficient implementation of the implicit method.
