We investigate a system of partial differential equations modeling supercritical multicomponent reactive fluids. These equations involve nonideal fluid thermodynamics, nonideal chemistry as well as multicomponent diffusion fluxes driven by chemical potential gradients. Only local symmetrization of the resulting system of partial differential equations may be achieved because of thermodynamic instabilities even though the entropy function is globally defined. Local symmetrized forms are… CONTINUE READING
