Derivation of a BGK model for reacting gas mixtures
Pages: 1199 – 1223
In this paper we derive a new relaxation model for reacting gas mixtures. We prove that this model satisfies the fundamental properties (equilibrium states, conservation laws, H-theorem, …). We also consider the slow reaction regime. In this case a rigorous Chapman-Enskog procedure is performed and Navier-Stokes equations are derived.
