Viscous Flows of Multicomponent Gases

Previously we outlined the problems of hypersonic viscous flows past bodies regarding the gas as being at equilibrium with the equation of state 12.1.12. Below, proceeding to nonequilibrium flows, we will give a brief outline of the basic elements of the model of dissipative processes, such as viscosity, heat conduction, and diffusion, in a nonequilibrium multicomponent gas based upon the results of molecular-kinetic theory of gases.
