This paper reports theoretical and numerical investigations on free molecular gas flows through micro-channels. Both diffusely and specularly reflective channel surfaces are considered. Gaskinetic methods are adopted to develop the analytical solutions for surface and flowfield properties. The crucial steps include constructing the velocity distribution functions (VDFs) for points at the plate surfaces and inside flowfield, and then completing the integration over the related velocity phases…

Competition of natural convection and thermal creep in a square enclosure
Although natural convection and thermal creep have been well recognized in the continuum and rarefied regimes, respectively, the study of the competition of them in a wide flow regime is very scarce.
