Abstract: Purpose - This paper aims to examine how using lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) aids the study of the isothermal-gas flow with slight rarefaction in long microtubes. Design/methodology/approach - A revised axisymmetric lattice Boltzmann model is proposed to simulate the flow in microtubes. The wall boundary condition combining the bounce-back and specular-reflection schemes is used to capture the slip velocity on the wall. Appropriate relation between the Knudsen number and relax-time constant is defined. Findings - The computed-slip velocity, average velocity and non-linear pressure distribution along the microtube are in excellent agreement with analytical solution of the weakly compressible Navier-Stokes equations. The calculated-friction factors are also consistent with available experimental data. For simulations of slip flow in microtube, LBM is more accurate and efficient than DSMC method. Research limitations/implications - The laminar flow in circular microtube is assumed to be axisymmetric. The present LBM is only applied to the simulation of slip flows (0.01 < Kn0
