Abstract : The problem of high velocity ratio near free molecular flow past a narrow strip is studied from the point of view of a previously developed kinetic model. The finite strip problem is approximated by the infinite strip problem. The logarithmic divergences arising in the infinite strip problem are handled by means of a cutoff procedure which is discussed in detail. Extensive numerical calculations of all the relevant aerodynamic quantities are presented. (Author)
