A numerical simulation is performed to study two-dimensional cross flow over a staggered array of square cylinders in a microchannel using the non-isothermal Information Preservation (IP) method. The IP method works concurrently with the Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) eliminating statistical noise from the DSMC results at low flow speeds. Pressure boundary conditions at the inlet and outlet based on the characteristic theory implemented. This study will form a base for our future particle-atomistic hybrid computations.
