Kinetic Description of Dilute Gases

simple kinetic theory of ideal molecular gases limited to local equilibrium based on the mean-free-path approximation

Hypotheses and Assumptions

- molecular hypothesis

▪ matter: composition of small discrete particles

- ▪ a large number of particles in any macroscopic
- volume (27×106 molecules in 1-mm3 at 25ºC and 1 atm)

- statistic hypothesis

▪ long time laps: longer than mean-free time or

relaxation time

- ▪ time average

kinetic hypothesis

▪ laws of classical mechanics: Newton’s law of motion

- molecular chaos

▪ velocity and position of a particle: uncorrelated

(phase space)

- ▪ velocity of any two particles: uncorrelated

- ideal gas assumptions

▪ molecules: widely separated rigid spheres

- ▪ elastic collision: energy and momentum conserved
- ▪ negligible intermolecular forces except during collisions
- ▪ duration of collision (collision time) << mean free time
- ▪ no collision with more than two particles

▪ number of particles in a volume element of the

phase space in

- Distribution Function

: particle number density in the phase

space at any time

▪ number of particles per unit volume

(integration over the velocity space)

density:

▪ total number of particles in the volume V

In a thermodynamic equilibrium state, the distribution function does not vary with time and space.

: additive property of a single molecule

such as kinetic energy and momentum

- Local Average and Flux

▪ local average or simply average

(average over the velocity space)

▪ ensemble average

(average over the phase space)

number of particles with velocities between and that passes through the area dA in the time interval dt

q

vdt

flux of y within

▪ flux of y : transfer of y across an area element dA

per unit time dt per unit area

dt is so small that particle collisions can be neglected.

: probability that a molecule travels at least x

between collisions

Probability for the particle to collide within an element

The Boltzmann Transport Equation

Volume element in phase space

Without collision, same number of particles in

Liouville equation

In the absence of collision and body force

: number of particles that join the group in

as a result of collisions

: number of particles lost to the group as a

result of collisions

: scattering probability

the fraction of particles with a velocity that

will change their velocity to per unit time

due to collision

With collisions, Boltzmann transport equation

Relaxation time approximation

under conditions not too far from the equilibrium

f0 : equilibrium distribution

t : relaxation time

: only random motion contributes to the

internal energy

u: mass specific internal energy

Fourier’s Law and Thermal conductivity

BTE under RTA

Assume that the temperature gradient is in the only x-direction, medium is stationary

local average velocity is zero, distribution function with x only at a steady state

If not very far away from equilibrium

Biomedical diagnosis (Lab-on-a-chip), drug delivery, MEMS/NEMS sensors, actuators, micropump for ink-jetprinting, microchannel heat sinks for electronic cooling

Fluid flow inside nanostructures, such as nanotubes and nanojet

The Knudsen Number and Flow Regimes

- Flow regimes

Continuum flow (Kn < 0.001)

The Navier-Stokes eqs. are applicable.

The velocity of flow at the boundary is the same as that of the wall

The temperature of flow near the wall is the same as the surface

temperature.

Conventionally, the flow can be assumed compressibility.

If Ma< 0.3, the flow can be assumed incompressible.

Consider compressibility : pressure change, density change

2. Slip flow (0.001 < Kn < 0.1)

Non-continuum boundary condition must be applied.

The velocity of fluid at the wall is not the same as that of the wall

(velocity slip).

The temperature of fluid near the wall is not the same as that of the wall (temperature jump).

3. Free molecule flow (Kn > 10)

The continuum assumption breaks down.

The “slip” velocity is the same as the velocity of the mainstream.

The temperature of fluid is all the same : no gradient exists

The BTE or the DSMC, are the best to solve problems in this regime.
