Abstract : A survey of the state of the art of Computational Aerodynamics based on the Euler Equations is presented. For the major Euler Codes that are currently in use in the NATO countries, numerical schemes, algorithms, grid generation, physical and numerical aspects, as well as a wide range of applications are included. Background material required for understanding the physics modelled by the Euler Equations is also presented. Areas of application concentrate on numerical simulation of external flows about aerospace vehicles. Internal flows and turbomachinery applications are not extensively treated but touched upon where considered appropriate.
