Abstract : This final report is for work carried out under Grant No. F49620-93-1-0143 during the 18-month period from 1 April, 1993 to 30 September, 1994. The principal objective of the research was to make use of a parallel computer code recently developed by our group, for Bird's direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method, and to gain experience in simulating various rarefied three-dimensional flows about bodies having reasonably complex geometries, for example, bodies based on geometries associated with current practical applications.
