Abstract

A NRxx Method is a numerical method for solving regularized moment equations for arbitrary order of moments without any explicit moment equations. In this talk, we introduce how to solve Boltzmann-BGK equations directly by this method to simulate some important phenomenon of complex flow, such as micro-flow.
