On the dependence of the Navier-Stokes equations on the distribution of molecular velocities.

Love, Peter J.

Boghosian, Bruce M.


  • In this work we introduce a completely general Chapman-Enskog procedure in which we divide the local distribution into an isotropic distribution with anisotropic corrections. We obtain a recursion relation on all integrals of the distribution function required in the derivation of the moment equations. We obtain the hydrodynamic equations in terms only of the first few moments of the isotropic par... read more
