Abstract / Description of output

The paper aims at presenting Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) extensions and applications to dense fluids. A succinct review of past and current research topics is presented, followed by a more detailed description of DSMC simulations for the numerical solution of the Enskog-Vlasov equation, applied to the study of liquid-vapor flows. Results about simulations of evaporation of a simple liquid in contact with a dense vapor are presented as an example.
