We present a kinetic model for nonideal fluids, where the local thermodynamic pressure is imposed through appropriate rescaling of the particle's velocities, accounting for both long- and short-range effects and hence full thermodynamic consistency. The model features full Galilean invariance together with mass, momentum, and energy conservation and enables simulations ranging from subcritical to supercritical flows, which is illustrated on various benchmark flows such as anomalous shock waves or shock droplet interaction.
