Propagation of small disturbances in a relaxing and radiating diatomic gas in vibrational nonequilibrium

In radiation gasdynamical problems, where the primary object of investigation is a moving gas, the influence of radiation on the parameters of the gas flow is usually neglected to avoid overcomplication of the problem. The growth and behavior of initial disturbances in a scattering, radiating, absorbing, viscous, heat-conducting gas characterized by local thermodynamic equilibrium has been investigated previously . However, for low pressures (p∼10−4 to 10−3 technical atm) and fairly high temperatures of the active molecular degrees of freedom (T∼103 to 3·103‡K) the distribution of the molecules among the vibrational levels can differ markedly from the equilibrium distribution due to the or der-of-magnitude closeness of the vibrational relaxation time Τc associated with collisions and the radiative deactivation time Τ* of excited molecules [2, 3]. We now analyze normal modes in a vibrationally nonequilibrium medium with allowance for radiation scattering in the vibrational-rotational band. We formulate a dispersion relation and discuss some limiting cases.
