Abstract:

The problem of nonequilibrium drag is applied to an arbitrary body in steady adiabatic subsonic dissociating gas flow, viscosity, heat conduction and diffusion being neglected. The basic equations are thermal and caloric equations of state, chemical relaxation equation, general equation of thermodynamic change, and first law of thermodynamics. These basic equations describe completely the thermodynamic behavior of the moving material element subjected to the effects of dissociation and recombination.
