An efficient DSMC technique for modeling of low-speed gas flows has been developed. THis technique greatly reduces the inherent DSMC noise and thus is suitable for modeling micro/nano gas flows whose typical velocities are below 10 m/s. Various examples were simulated and results were validated with DSMC and with other methods.
