Multi-Dimensional Problems. Study of Free Jet Flows

  • V. V. Aristov
Part of the Fluid Mechanics and its Applications book series (FMIA, volume 60)


For many years the question was: is it possible in principle to solve the Boltzmann equation by direct integration for complicated three-dimensional problems? The practical possibilities lay in the use of simulation methods. However, construction of the conservative methods and application of new computers allowed acceptable solutions to be obtained with the use of coarse grids in different complex problems.
