A finite difference scheme is presented for the solution of the two-dimensional equations of steady, supersonic, isentropic flow. The scheme incorporates numerical characteristic decomposition, is shock-capturing by design and incorporates space marching as a result of the assumption that the flow is wholly supersonic in at least one space dimension. Results are shown for problems involving oblique hydraulic jumps and reflection from a wall.
