Default boundary conditions in a DSMC simulation

Hello all,

I'm using the DSMC method to model flow and heat transfer at low pressures. Usually, I use a prescribed temperature boundary condition (Dirichlet).

Now I want to model a problem where the temperature at the boundary is not known. So I want to apply a heatflux (neumann kind) or a mixed (robin kind) boundary condition.

However, I'm not sure how to implement these kind of boundary conditions within the DSMC method. Could anybody give some hints or references where the procedure is described?

Regards, Luuk
