AE 512 ONL - Molecular Gas Dynamics

Campus: Urbana-Champaign


The course focuses on the molecular description of physical and chemical processes in gases. The molecular viewpoint is essential to promote the understanding of physical processes occurring at very high temperatures and low pressures. These conditions are typically encountered in high speed and non-equilibrium gas flows. After a brief review of the fundamental concepts of statistical mechanics and chemical thermodynamics, the course focuses on the fundamentals of kinetic theory of gases, equilibrium chemistry, non-equilibrium kinetics and non-thermal radiation. Course Information: 4 graduate hours. No professional credit. Prerequisite: AE 311, AE 312, ME 200.
