A shock-wave diffracts over a 90 degree sharp corner. This uncritical example has been used intensively as a standard benchmark in the past.

- Two-dimensional Euler-equations for an ideal gas (Air with gamma=1.4)
- Dimensional splitting, Roe solver, MUSCL variable reconstruction with Van Albada limiter
- Calculation with CFL-No. 0.95 to time t=0.75
- AMR-computation with a coarse grid of 300x300 cells

2 grid levels:

- Calculation of 251 time steps
- 1 levels with refinement factor 2 is used .
- Finest level corresponds to 600x600 grid (360 K cells)

3 grid levels:

- Calculation of 255 time steps
- 2 levels with refinement factor 2 and 4 are used .
- Finest level corresponds to 2400x2400 grid (5.76 M cells)
