TVD concepts applied to inviscid (Euler) terms of fully Navier Stokes equations seem to improve the accuracy of the numerical solutions; this is obtained at the expense of greater computational effort, due both to code complexity and to slow rate of convergence. Further investigation is needed to asses the superiority of the present approach versus others.
