Formulations which complement the streamline-upwind/Petrov-Galerkin procedure are presented. These formulations minimize the oscillations about sharp internal and boundary layers in convection-dominated and reaction-dominated flows. The proposed methods are tested on various single- and multi-component transport problems.
