A numerical scheme is presented for the solution of the Euler equations of compressible flow of a real gas in a single spatial coordinate. This include flow in a duct of variable cross-section as well as flow with cylindrical or spherical symmetry, and can prove useful when testing codes for the two-dimensional equations governing compressible flow of a real gas. The scheme is applied with success to a problem involving the interaction of converging and diverging cylindrical shocks for four equations of state and to a problem involving the reflection of a converging shock.
