Thermodynamic and transport properties of high temperature equilibrium air plasmas have been calculated in a wide pressure (0.01 ÷ 100 atm) and temperature range (50 ÷ 60 000 K). The results have been obtained by using a self-consistent approach for the thermodynamic properties and higher order approximation of the Chapman-Enskog method for the transport(More)

a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t An efficient algorithm to calculate the contribution of electron–electron collisions in the Boltzmann equation for free electrons, in the two-term approximation is presented. The electron–electron collision term must be energy-conserving, while, due to non-linearity, commonly used algorithms do not satisfy this(More)
