Transport phenomena in neutral and ionized gases

Robson, R. E.

Description

Transport processes in gases are examined from both the point of view of non-equilibrium thermodynamics and kinetic theory. Thermodynamics is used to establish concise representations of the general properties of transport coefficients, and in particular, it is shown how the redundancy of Onsager relations in systems with geometrical symmetries can be removed by using the theory of irreducible tensorial sets. The Boltzmann equation for fully and partially ionized gases is solved by a...[Show more]
