Evaluating various non-continuum flow solvers in OpenFOAM

Simulating flows at high Knudsen numbers in modelling MEMS, NEMS and high speed aerodynamics requires utilization of extended Navier-Stokes equations, i.e., continuum flow equations involving various forms of constitutive equations. This Msc Project will be devoted to evaluating the performance of some of these newly developed codes on configurations such as heat transfer in nanochannel and flows in nano cavities.
