Rarefied gas dynamics: Theoretical and computational techniques; International Symposium, 16th, Pasadena, CA, July 1016, 1988, Technical Papers
Abstract
Among the areas covered are kinetic theory, discrete kinetic theory, direct simulations, numerical techniques, and flowfields. The topics discussed include various problems for the Boltzman equation, such as initial and boundary values, the collision integral, and stationary flows. Discretevelocity gases, molecular dynamics calculations of transport properties, and multispeed cellular automation are among the topics discussed within the framework of the discrete kinetic theory. Attention is given to numerical methods in rarefied gasdynamics, statistical fluctuations in Monte Carlo calculations, and rarefield normal shocks. Emphasis is placed on numerical solutions for the Boltzman equation, as well as on Monte Carlo solutions. Threedimensional flows, hypersonic flows, transitional flows, and wake flows are also analyzed.
