### high resolution shock capture

**(HRSC)**
(method of modeling shock waves)

**High resolution shock capture** (**HRSC**) refers to some numerical
methods of modeling shock waves. Generally, they incorporate
methods using grids aligned with the flow and shock front.

Shock waves are not well-modeled by general-purpose
fluid dynamics codes, which generally work well handling values
that change only gradually or smoothly over space and time dimensions.
Pretty-much by definition, *shock* means something not like that.
**Shock capture schemes** have been developed to handle such special
situations. HRSC schemes are recent methods aiming to produce good
accuracy efficiently.
