Summary: We describe numerical modelling of viscous gas flows. The method is based on upwind flux vector splitting finite volume scheme combined with nonconforming finite elements. Special attention is paid to a suitable adaptive strategy for a precise resolution of shock waves. In the paper \(d\)-dimensional flow is described, where \(d= 2\) or \(d=3\). The geometrical data and computational results are presented for a three-dimensional flow.
