The well known Jameson-Schmidt-Turkel (JST) dissipation is used to compute hypersonic flows over an airfoil. The basic code is a cell-centered, explicit, Runge-Kutta, local time stepping, multigrid accelerated Navier-Stokes solver for transonic flows. In an attempt to enhance the capability of this code to compute flows at all speeds, we find that the JST scheme in its original form is not only capable of computing flows at speeds all the way up to Mach 50 but also the rate of convergence, and the final results are as good as those obtained using the Swanson-Turkel modification of the JST scheme to compute hypersonic flows. The performance of the scheme is also compared with the flux limited dissipation of Yoon and Kwak (1988). We find that the JST scheme performs better. In fact, the scheme is seen to be so robust that it does not require a well prepared starting solution to compute flows with either strong shocks or with high incidence or both.
