Abstract:

A review of research on non-equilibrium flows is presented. The work is divided into two parts, containing published and unpublished research, respectively. Part I deals with the thermodynamics and dynamics of multireacting mixtures. By starting from basic postulates, a self-consistent and complete thermodynamic theory is formulated. The study of the dynamics is mostly limited to the linearized approximation and falls within two categories a formulation of basic equations and analysis of their overall properties and b the solutions of typically representative flow fields. Part II deals with the derivation and discussion of the potential equation for linearized steady motion of a multireacting mixture within the volume-viscosity analogy. Also, the notion of thermodynamic characteristic speeds introduced in Part I is generalized, and a more exhaustive study of its properties is made. Author
