A full (3+1)-dimensional calculation using Lagrangian hydrodynamics is proposed for relativistic nuclear collisions. This calculation enables us to evaluate the anisotropic flow of the hadronic matter which appears in non-central and/or asymmetrical relativistic nuclear collisions. Applying hydrodynamical calculations to the deformed uranium collisions in the AGS energy region, we discuss the nature of the space-time structure and particle distributions in detail.
