Abstract: A series of hyperbolic moment equations is derived for the Boltzmann equation with ES-BGK collision term. These systems can be obtained through a slight modification in the deduction of Grad’s moment equations, and such a method is suitable for deriving systems with moments up to any order. The systems are equipped with proper wall boundary conditions so that the number of equations in the boundary conditions is consistent with the hyperbolic structure of the moment system. Our numerical scheme for solving the hyperbolic moment systems is of second order, and a special mapping method is introduced so that the numerical efficiency is highly enhanced. Our numerical results are validated by comparison with the DSMC results. Through the numerical solutions of systems with increasing number of moments, the convergence of the moment method is clearly observed.
