讲座内容摘要

The nonequilibrium rarefied gas flows are often encountered in the high-altitude aerodynamics, the nano/micro-electro-mechanical systems (N/MEMS), and vacuum technology. Accurate physical models and efficient numerical methods are required for predicting the nonequilibrium flow phenomena encountered in rarefied gas flow conditions. The mathematical theory of the rarefied gas dynamic is the kinetic theory, in which the evolution of the gas molecules is described by the Boltzmann equation. The direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method is the most widely used numerical method to solve the Boltzmann equation. However, the major features of this stochastic method make it inefficient in simulating low-speed flows and unsteady flows, and hinder coupling to continuum CFD and deterministic structural, thermal and electrostatic modeling. The deterministic numerical simulation (DNS) approaches relaying on the discrete ordinate method (DOM) are attractive alternatives to overcome the DSMC limitations. These methods adopt a numerical quadrature to approximate the integration with respect to molecular velocity on a discrete set of velocities. Then, the distribution functions which are continuous in physical space and time but discrete in velocity space are solved by various of CFD methods.

   This talk discusses the development of a high-order Runge-Kutta Discontinuous Galerkin (RKDG) method for the deterministic solution of the Boltzmann kinetic equation. A conservative DG type discretization of the nonlinear collision relaxation term is formulated for both the Bhatnager-Gross-Krook and the ellipsoidal statistical kinetic models. The RKDG method has up to 3rd order spatial accuracy and up to 4th-order time accuracy. The computational performance of the RKDG method is compared with a widely used 2nd order finite volume method (FVM). It is shown that 2nd order RKDG is over 15 times faster than the 2nd order FVM method for the Couette flow test case.
