This paper further considers weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) and Hermite weighted essentially non-oscillatory (HWENO) finite volume methods as limiters for Runge-Kutta discontinuous Galerkin (RKDG) methods to solve problems involving nonlinear hyperbolic conservation laws. The application discussed here is the solution of 3-D problems on unstructured meshes. Our numerical tests again demonstrate this is a robust and high order limiting procedure, which simultaneously achieves high order accuracy and sharp non-oscillatory shock transitions.
