A two-dimensional Eulerian hydrodynamic method for the numerical simulation of inviscid compressible multi-material flow in external force fields for the situation of pure fluids separated by macroscopic interfaces is presented. The method combines in implicit Lagrangean step with an explicit Eulerian advection step. Material volume is tracked using piecewise linear volume-of-fluid method. An overshoot-free logically simple and economic material advection algorithm for cylinder coordinates is derived, in an algebraic formulation. New aspects arising in the case of more than two materials are presented. One- and two-dimensional numerical examples are given.
