dc.descriptionThis paper was presented at the 3rd Micro and Nano Flows Conference (MNF2011), which was held at the Makedonia Palace Hotel, Thessaloniki in Greece. The conference was organised by Brunel University and supported by the Italian Union of Thermofluiddynamics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, University of Thessaly, IPEM, the Process Intensification Network, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Heat Transfer Society, HEXAG - the Heat Exchange Action Group, and the Energy Institute.en_US
dc.description.abstractThe transient heat transfer problem through a rarefied gas confined between parallel plates maintained at different temperatures is investigated. The theoretical formulation is based on the linear BGK kinetic model subject to Maxwell diffuse reflection. The governing time dependent equation is solved by using the discrete velocity method. Results are presented for the number density, macroscopic velocity, heat flux and temperature distributions in the whole range of the Knudsen number. The results are compared with direct Monte Carlo simulations and good agreement is found for small temperature variations.en_US
