Molecular gas dynamics


A dynamics which treats gas as a mass of molecules.

Molecular gas dynamics deals with behavior of gas in wide range of states covering conventional gas dynamics problems. Molecular gas dynamics have features that can explain conventional gas dynamics from a microscopic point of view, and can treat multiple component gas systems, gas systems in which chemical reactions take place coherently. Application of molecular gas dynamics is expected in various fields such as the aerospace engineering, vacuum technology, micromachine technology, and aerosol.
