Abstract

Transport coefficients of equilibrium Martian atmosphere have been calculated in the second non-vanishing Chapman-Enskog approximation and compared with existing literature results. The present work improves previous calculations by considering a very detailed chemistry model of Martian atmosphere that includes 53 species and by extending the temperature range up to 50 000 K.
