The course presents kinetic theory of gases and its application to equilibrium flows and nonequilibrium flows at the introductory graduate level. Fundamental topics are chosen from: equilibrium kinetic theory; binary collisions; the Boltzmann equation; transport theory and equations. Application topics are chosen from: free molecular aerodynamics; shocks; non equilibrium flows. Students cannot receive credit for this course if they have taken AE/ME 5102“Advanced Gas Dynamics”.
