A new hydrocode which is still under development using Lagrangian, Eulerian and arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian operators, has been described. The three operators are implemented into a single framework by incorporating the sequential three stages of Lagrangian, remesh and remap stages. Several numerical schemes used for each operator are discussed briefly in this paper. In order to evaluate the characteristics of each operator, the Taylor Impact Test has been simulated using each operator and the results are compared. Currently the code is 1st order accuracy in the material interface tracking algorithm and can not handle multimaterial in the mixed cell. The areas of possible enhancement of the code are also discussed.
