Comparison of particle (DSMC) simulation with the numerical solution of the Navier-Stokes (NS) equations for pressure-driven plane Poiseuille flow is presented and contrasted with that of the acceleration-driven Poiseuille flow. Although for the acceleration-driven case DSMC measurements are qualitatively different from the NS solution at relatively low Knudsen number, the two are in somewhat better agreement for pressure-driven flow.
