A DSMC solver, adapted to the subsonic micro flow, is developed under the object-conception language (C++). Some technical details critical in these DSMC computations are provided. The numerical simulations of gas flow in micro channel are carried out using developed DSMC solver. Streamwise velocity distributions in the slip flow regime are compared with the analytical solution based on the Navier-Stokes equations with the velocity slip boundary condition. Satisfactory agreements have been achieved. Furthermore, the domain of the validity of this continuum approach is discussed. Simulations are then extended to transitional flow regime. Streamwise velocity distributions are also compared with the results of the numerical solutions of the linearized Boltzmann equation. We emphasize the influence of the accommodation coefficient on the velocity profiles and on the mass flow rate. The simulation results on the mass flow rate are compared with the experimental data, that allow us to validate the “experimental” technique of the determination of the accommodation coefficient.
