On the turbulent thermal conductivity of a gas in the field of an external force

  • A. M. Krigel’
Short Communications


The kinetic relation defining turbulent thermal conductivity in the field of an external force is derived using the entropy evolution equation applied to an ideal one-component turbulent gas under the assumption of fluctuation polytropism.
