The propagation of normal rarefaction waves in dusty gases has been investigated numerically, using the modified random choice method with operator splitting technique. The effects of the dust parameters on the flow properties inside and behind the rarefaction wave are studied. The results are compared with those appropriate to a dust-free gas.
