Abstract:

The energy and momentum relaxation of the components of a non-equipartition gas mixture is considered. For the case where each component of the mixture has a Maxwellian distribuation at a particular temperature, with the peculiar velocity in the Maxwellian measured relative to the species diffusion velocity, and a diffusion Mach number not too large, the results have a particularly simple form. The calculations were carried out for the hard sphere, Coulomb, and Maxwell force laws of interaction. It is also noted how these results may be used to construct approximate kinetic model equations for the case of hard sphere and Coulomb interaction, in a manner similar to that proposed by Sirovich.
