The authors present an overview of a new finite element method for the compressible Euler and Navier-Stokes equations. The discretization is based on entropy variables. The method is developed within the framework of a Petrov-Galerkin formulation. Two perturbations are added to the weighting function; one is a generalization of the SUPG operator and the other is designed to enhance shock capturing capability. The treatment of boundary conditions and the consistent calculation of boundary fluxes are addressed. Results of numerical tests are presented which confirm the robustness and wide applicability of the method.
