In the present contribution, we derive from kinetic theory a unified fluid model for multicomponent plasmas by accounting for the electromagnetic field influence. We deal with a possible thermalâ€¦ (More)

We investigate a system of partial differential equations modeling ambipolar plasmas. The ambipolarâ€”or zero currentâ€”model is obtained from general plasmas equations in the limit of vanishing debyeâ€¦ (More)

We investigate the kinetic theory of partially ionized reactive gas mixtures in strong magnetic fields following [Physica A 327 (2003) 313â€“348]. A new tensor basis is introduced for expanding theâ€¦ (More)

We investigate a system of partial differential equations modeling ionized magnetized reactive gas mixtures. In this model, transport fluxes are anisotropic linear combinations of fluid macroscopicâ€¦ (More)

We investigate iterative algorithms for solving complex symmetric constrained singular systems arising in magnetized multicomponent transport. The matrices of the corresponding linear systems areâ€¦ (More)

We discuss transport coefficients in weakly ionized mixtures. We investigate the situations of weak and strong magnetic fields as well as electron temperature nonequilibrium. We present in eachâ€¦ (More)

We derive a model for reactive plasmas based on kinetic theory, accounting for an ionization mechanism and dealing with a possible thermal non-equilibrium of the translational energy of the electronsâ€¦ (More)

Plasmas have a broad field of applications, such as air-breathing hypersonic vehicles (plasma control for scramjet engine), spacecraft atmospheric entries (influence of precursor electrons andâ€¦ (More)

In this paper we study the acoustic properties of a microstructured material such as glass wool or foam. In our model, the solid matrix is governed by linear elasticity and the surrounding fluidâ€¦ (More)
