Abstract
This chapter studies several relatively simple problems. Some of them can be considered as test cases, others have physical interest. The problems of heat transfer or the normal shock wave structure are, in fact, a part of more complex processes in a rarefied gas. Although these onedimensional steady flows for monatomic gas are well investigated now, obtaining reliable test solutions is a special and not very simple problem. The conservative splitting method of the direct numerical analysis of the Boltzmann equation is one of the preferable approaches to attain this aim. One of the possible purposes can be a consideration of several methods, in order to understand the order of their accuracy.
