Lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) and direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method are used for analysis of moderate Knudsen number phenomena. Simulation results are presented for pressure-driven isothermal rarefied channel flow at various pressure ratios. Analytical equations for non-linear pressure distribution and velocity profiles along the channel axis are used to verify the present LBM and DSMC results. We conclude that the LBM method can be used as an alternative model to DSMC simulations.
