Abstract The system of Navier–Stokes–Fourier equations is one of the most celebrated systems of equations in modern science. It describes dynamics of fluids in the limit when gradients of density, velocity and temperature are sufficiently small, and loses its applicability when the flux becomes so non-equilibrium that the changes of velocity, density or temperature on the length compatible with the mean free path are non-negligible. The question is: how to model such fluxes? This problem is… 

Global existence and time decay estimate of solutions to the compressible Navier–Stokes–Korteweg system under critical condition

In this research, we study the global existence of solutions to the compressible Navier–Stokes–Korteweg system around a constant state. This system describes liquid-vapor type two-phase flow with a

Nonlinear dispersive regularization of inviscid gas dynamics

Ideal gas dynamics can develop shock-like singularities with discontinuous density. Viscosity typically regularizes such singularities and leads to a shock structure. On the other hand, in 1d,

A fully second-order continuum theory of fluids is developed. The conventional balance equations of mass, linear momentum, energy and entropy are used. Constitutive equations are assumed to depend on

Kinetic derivation of diffuse-interface fluid models.

The capillary extra terms and the capillarity coefficient are associated with intermolecular forces and the pair interaction potential and a second-order expansion of the pair distribution function is used to derive the diffuse interface model.

This paper addresses the main issue of Hilbert’s sixth problem, namely the rigorous passage of solutions to the mesoscopic Boltzmann equation to macroscopic solutions of the Euler equations of

On the numerical simulation of rarefied gas flows in micro-channels

Classical continuum methods break down for rarefied gas flows in micro-channels. Two non-continuum hydrodynamic models are investigated here: compressible Korteweg fluid-like and Bi-Velocity (Volume

Compressible–Incompressible Two-Phase Flows with Phase Transition: Model Problem

We study the compressible and incompressible two-phase flows separated by a sharp interface with a phase transition and a surface tension. In particular, we consider the problem in $$\mathbb

Time Decay Estimate with Diffusion Wave Property and Smoothing Effect for Solutions to the Compressible Navier-Stokes-Korteweg System

Time decay estimate of solutions to the compressible Navier-Stokes-Korteweg system is studied. Concerning the linearized problem, the decay estimate with diffusion wave property for an initial data

Global large solutions and optimal time-decay estimates to the Korteweg system

We prove the global solutions to the Korteweg system without smallness condition imposed on the vertical component of the incompressible part of the velocity. The weighted Chemin-Lerner-norm

Field theoretic viewpoints on certain fluid mechanical phenomena.

In this thesis we study field theoretic viewpoints on certain fluid mechanical phenomena. In the Higgs mechanism, the weak gauge bosons acquire masses by interacting with a scalar field, leading to



Short-Wave Limit of Hydrodynamics: A Soluble Example.

This Letter considers the CE procedure for a simple model of nonhydrodynamic description (one-dimensional linearized 10-moment Grad equations) and the CE series, which is due to a nonlinear procedure even here and which also suffers the Bobylev instability in low-order approximations.

Kinetic Theory and Fluid Dynamics

In this series of talks, I will discuss the fluid-dynamic-type equations that is derived from the Boltzmann equation as its the asymptotic behavior for small mean free path. The study of the relation

Instabilities in the Chapman-Enskog Expansion and Hyperbolic Burnett Equations

It is well-known that the classical Chapman-Enskog procedure does not work at the level of Burnett equations (the next step after the Navier-Stokes equations). Roughly speaking, the reason is that

Hilbert's 6th problem: Exact and approximate hydrodynamic manifolds for kinetic equations

The problem of the derivation of hydrodynamics from the Boltz- mann equation and related dissipative systems is formulated as the problem of slow invariant manifold in the space of distributions. We

Thermal Creep of a Rarefied Gas on the Basis of Non-linear Korteweg-Theory

The study of thermal transpiration, more commonly called thermal creep, is accomplished by use of Korteweg’s theory of capillarity. Incorporation of this theory into the balance laws of continuum

On the trend to global equilibrium for spatially inhomogeneous kinetic systems: The Boltzmann equation

As part of our study of convergence to equilibrium for spatially inhomogeneous kinetic equations, started in [21], we derive estimates on the rate of convergence to equilibrium for solutions of the

A simple model of the derivation of fluid mechanics from the Boltzmann equation

Q is independent of / > 0 and maps a f unction ƒ belonging to a certain manifold M into a tangent vector Q [f] based at ƒ, so that the flow defined by (1) is a flow on M. Now it may happen that the

Hydrodynamics from Grad's equations: What can we learn from exact solutions?

A detailed treatment of the classical Chapman‐Enskog derivation of hydrodynamics is given in the framework of Grad's moment equations. Grad's systems are considered as the minimal kinetic models

Justification of limit for the Boltzmann equation related to Korteweg theory

. Under the diffusion scaling and a scaling assumption on the microscopic component, a non-classical fluid dynamic system was derived by Bardos et al. (2008) that is related to the system of ghost
