  • Macroscopic Transport Equations for Rarefied Gas Flowsby Henning Struchtrup

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 99.00

    The well known transport laws of Navier-Stokes and Fourier fail for the simulation of processes on lengthscales in the order of the mean free path of a particle that is when the Knudsen number is not small enough. Thus, the proper simulation of flows in rarefied gases requires a more detailed description. This book discusses classical and modern methods... more...
