Rotational-translational relaxation effects in diatomic-gas flows


The problem of deriving the nonequilibrium gas dynamic equations from the first principles of the kinetic theory of gases was studied by Ferziger and Kaper [1] in the cases of near-equilibrium and slow-relaxation processes of the energy exchange between internal and translational degrees of molecular freedom. The case of the arbitrary energy exchange ratio… (More)
