Abstract: We present the Octant Flux Splitting DSMC method as an efficient method for simulating nonequilibrium flows of rarefied gas, particularly those arising from thermal loading. We discuss the current state-of-the-art Flux Splitting IP-DSMC technique and show that it fails to capture the shear stresses created by thermal gradients. We present the development of the Octant Flux Splitting IP-DSMC as well as degenerate 2-D, 1-D, and 0-D forms and apply the method to a number of problems including thermal transpiration, with satisfactory results.
