Motion of a rarefied gas in a plane channel in the presence of condensation on the channel walls

  • 25 Accesses


We examine the flow of a rarefied gas through a broad range of Knudsen numbers under the action of small pressure and temperature differences in a plane short channel, with provision made for the processes of evaporation and condensation at the channel walls.
