A method for the calculation of steady or unsteady compressible flows is presented. The procedure, based on a cartesian cut cell approach and multi-dimensional high resolution upwind finite volume scheme, can cope with static or moving body problems having arbitrarily complex geometries. The method is described in two parts. In Part A, we discuss the cartesian cut cell approach and upwind finite volume scheme for static body problems. The method is validated on test problems involving both steady and unsteady compressible flows and then applied to some practical problems. The extension of the method to moving body problems is presented in Part B (pp 57-65).
