Abstract

In 1910 Martin Knudsen studied the thermal creep effect in a cylindrical pipe with an applied temperature gradient. The researcher developed the device that could work as a pump under certain conditions. This invention has found a practical interest in the modern nano- and microtechnologies. In this work the Knudsen experiment is repeated by means of computer simulation of the kinetic Boltzmann equation. The results obtained are compared. Keywords: Knudsen pump, simulation, kinetic Boltzmann equation, unstructured grids, projection method
