Abstract: The dynamic gas flow in silica aerogel caused by ambient pressure change is an important factor to influence the thermal conductivity performance. Due to the ultrafine pore size, the flow in the silica aerogel is non-continuum. The direct simulation Monte Carlo method is selected to simulate the transient behavior of gas dynamic flow in nanoporous silica aerogel caused by pressure difference. The influences of pressure ratio and porosity on the unsteady dynamic response and the magnitude of the macroscopic parameters are investigated. The results show that the response processes under different pressure ratio and porosity conditions are similar. The effect of the pressure ratio and porosity are mainly reflected on the magnitude of the macro parameters and response time.
