Coupling Boltzmann and Navier-Stokes equations by half fluxes. (English) Zbl 0890.76042
Summary: We introduce an adaptive coupling of the Boltzmann and Navier-Stokes equations to compute hypersonic flows around a vehicle at high altitude. The coupling is achieved by matching half fluxes at the interface of the Boltzmann and Navier-Stokes domains. The domains are determined automatically by computing local kinetic residuals based on a preliminary Navier-Stokes solution. Our method is developed for monoatomic gases. Different numerical results illustrate its validity and limits.
