Abstract : Four numerical experiments are performed to support floating shock-fitting techniques in multi-dimensional flow problems. By floating shock-fitting is meant the fitting of a shock as a sharp discontinuity, free of moving within the computational mesh. Evidences of accuracy and stability are given. (Author)
