Mass and heat transport in a dilute binary mixture of Maxwell molecules under steady shear flow are studied in the limit of small concentration gradients. The analysis is made from the Gross–Krook kinetic model of the Boltzmann equation. This model is solved by means of a perturbation solution around the steady shear flow solution [Phys. Fluids 8, 2756 (1996)], which applies for arbitrary values of the shear rate. In the first order of the expansion the results show that the mass and heat…

Uniform shear flow in a binary mixture with general repulsive interactions

A kinetic model for a binary mixture under uniform shear flow is exactly solved. The model incorporates a temperature dependence of the collision frequencies that allows the consideration of general

Mutual and self-diffusion in fluids undergoing strong shear.

A Green-Kubo relation is derived for the mutual diffusion tensor (MDT) of a binary fluid mixture subject to a strong Couette shear field and the zero-color field color conductivity and the SDT are different, confirming the prediction by Evans, Baranyai, and Sarman.

Kinetic models for diffusion in shear flow

The kinetic models proposed by Garzo et al. [Phys. Fluids A 1, 380 (1989)] and Gross and Krook [Phys. Rev. 102, 593 (1956)] are used to study diffusion in uniform shear flow. The kinetic equations

Tracer diffusion in shear flow.

The Boltzmann-Lorentz equation for Maxwell molecules is used to study tracer diffusion in uniform shear flow. It is shown that some values of the mass ratio may prevent the establishment of a

Tracer diffusion under shear flow for general repulsive interactions

Tracer diffusion in a steady shear flow state is analyzed. A kinetic model incorporating a temperature dependence in the collision frequencies is used. This allows for the consideration of a general

Transport far from equilibrium: Uniform shear flow

The Bhatnager-Gross-Krook model kinetic equation is applied to spatially inhomogeneous states near steady uniform shear flow. The shear rate of the reference steady state can be large, so the states

Monte Carlo simulation of the Boltzmann equation in the colour conductivity problem for general repulsive potentials

The homogeneous colour conductivity problem for a binary mixture in the low-density regime is studied by means of the direct Monte Carlo simulation method. This method is used to solve the Boltzmann

Model for Collision Processes in Gases: Small-Amplitude Oscillations of Charged Two-Component Systems

The general features of the small-amplitude oscillations of a two-component ionized gas are discussed. The effects of the random thermal motions of ions and electrons are described by one-particle
