Can I use DSMC algorithm with fluent??
 
Hi,

I want to analysis nozzle plume in vacuum,

unfortunately, Knudsen number >> 0.03

that means Navier-Stokes Equations gonna be useless :x

so I googled, DSMC(Direct Simulation Monte Carlo) algorithm could

solve Boltzmann Equation(which is valid for rarefied gas).


here is my question; can i use DSMC(or whatever has ability to solve Boltzmann equation) through Fluent?


thanks for your reading(although my English skill was terrible)

and I'll wait for your reply :D
