    Abstract

    The aim of the present work is to make use of the constitutive scaling method to produce a computational tool suitable for analysing microscale flows. Both incompressible and compressible numerical solvers featuring constitutive scaling models and a range of appropriate boundary conditions have been developed to this end. A detailed assessment of the implications of extending the constitutive scaling method to fully compressible flows has also been carried out.
