A nonequilibrium polydisperse flow in an axisymmetric nozzle with condensate particle coagulation and breakup

  • 26 Accesses


A kinetic description is given for the flow of a polydisperse medium, which is based on the general theory for nonequilibrium processes; the conversion to generalized transport equations is discussed and the closure of the infinite equation chain. An example is given of numerical calculations on such a flow in a nozzle on the basis of particle coalescence and breakup.
