Transport coefficients of plasmas and disparate mass binary gases. (English) Zbl 0909.35108
The dynamics of an inhomogeneous disparate mass binary gas or plasma in which the species have different molecular weights is investigated. In particular, the inhomogeneous case is studied at various time scales. Three time scales are considered. The first scale is the Maxwellianization scale of the light species (the scale at which the light species relaxes to a local Maxwellian thermodynamical equilibrium). The second scale is the Maxwellianization scale of the heavy species, whereas the third scale is the relaxation scale of the relative velocity.
An accurate use of Hilbert or Chapman-Enskog methods at various scales is performed. The obtained models are identical with the conventional plasma models except that the electron (or light particle system) is in the form of an energy-transport model instead of a hydrodynamic model.
