Performance of first, second and third order accurate methods for calculation of inviscid fluxes in fluid flow governing equations are investigated here. For the purpose, an upwind method based on Roe’s scheme is used to solve 2-dimensional Euler equations. To increase the accuracy of the method two different schemes are applied. The first one is a second and third order upwind-based algorithm with the MUSCL extrapolation Van Leer (1979), based on primitive variables. The other one is an upwind-based algorithm with the Chakravarthy extrapolation to the fluxes of mass, momentum and energy. The results show that the thickness of shock layer in the third order accuracy is less than its value in second order. Moreover, applying limiter eliminates the oscillations near the shock while increases the thickness of shock layer especially in MUSCL method using Van Albada limiter.
