Thermodynamical considerations implying wall/particles scattering kernels

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper we study the thermodynamics of a rarefied gas contained in a closed vessel at constant volume. By adding axiomatic rules to the usual ones derived by Cercignani, we obtain a new symmetry property in the wall/particle scattering kernel. This new symmetry property enables us to show the first and second law of macroscopic thermodynamics for a rarefied gas having collisions with walls. Then we study the behavior of the rarefied gas when it is in contact with several (moving) thermostats at the same time. We show the existence, uniqueness and long time behavior of the solution to the homogeneous (linear) evolution equation describing the system. Finally we apply our thermodynamical model of rarefied gas to the measurement of heat flux in very low density systems and compare it to the experimental results, shading into light new interpretation of observed behaviors.
