A second order cartesian scheme for BGK equation


A simple second order scheme is presented for BGK equation on cartesian grids to simulate rarefied gas flows. An immersed boundary technique is then used since the mesh is body fitted. The asymptotic preserving properties of the BGK equation discretization towards Euler limit are also investigated with emphasis on the boundary conditions as the Knudsen number goes to zero. Reconstruction techniques and levelset functions are used to modify the fluxes at the nearest interface of the body and enforce the boundary conditions at second order. The same method is applied in 1D and 2D cases to demonstrate its accuracy
