Abstract:

In the paper new calculated transport coefficients of air in the temperature range 50-100 000 K are presented. The results have been obtained by means of the perturbative Chapman-Enskog method, assuming that the plasma is in local thermodynamic equilibrium (LTE). The calculations include viscosity, thermal conductivity, electric conductivity and multicomponent diffusion coefficients. For the calculation, a recent compilation of collision integrals obtained by Capitelli et al. [1] has been utilized. Analytical expression for all transport coefficients and thermodynamic parameters of the air plasma are also reported.
