Abstract: The Regularized 13-Moment Equations state a model for describing rarefied gas flows. The equations are based on a moment approximation of the Boltzmann equation and aim at an accurate prediction up to Knudsen numbers of 0.5. This paper is concerned with the numerical treatment of the PDE system, with special focus on slow flows. Finite elements and finite volumes are applied and the results of both approaches are discussed and the pros and cons are outlined.
