A new monograph “Rarefied Gas Dynamics, Fundamentals, Simulations and Micro Flows” by Professor Ching Shen of our Institute has been published recently in Springer Verlag (Berlin-Heidelberg, 2005) as a book in the Series “Heat and Mass Transfer” (430 pages, hardcover, ISBN: 3-540- 23926-X, 119.95 Euros).
The Springer introduces this monograph at its web site: This book elucidates the methods of molecular gas dynamics or rarefied gas dynamics which treat the problems of gas flows when the discrete molecular effects of the gas prevail under the circumstances of low density, the emphases being stressed on the basis of the methods, the direct simulation Monte-Carlo method applied to the simulation of the nonequilibrium effects and the frontier subjects related to low speed microscale rarefied gas flows. It provides a solid basis for the study of molecular gas dynamics for senior students and graduates in the aerospace and mechanical engineering departments of universities and colleges. It gives a general acquaintance of modern developments of rarefied gas dynamics in various regimes and leads to the frontier topics of non-equilibrium rarefied gas dynamics and low speed microscale gas dynamics. It will be also of benefit to the scientific and technical researchers engaged in aerospace high altitude aerodynamic force and heating design and in the research of gas flows in MES.
