Kinetic modelling of rarefied gas flows with radiation
Two kinetic models are proposed for high-temperature rarefied (or non-equilibrium) gas flows with internal degrees of freedom and radiation. One of the models uses the Boltzmann collision operator to model the translational motion of gas molecules, which has the ability to capture the influence of intermolecular potentials, while the other adopts the relaxation time approximations, which has higher computational efficiency. In our kinetic model equations, not only the transport coefficients such as the shear/bulk viscosity and thermal conductivity but also their underlying relaxation processes are recovered. The non-equilibrium dynamics of gas flow and radiation are tightly coupled, where the transport properties of gas molecules and photons are correlatively dependent. The proposed kinetic models are validated by the direct simulation Monte Carlo method in several non-radiative rarefied gas flows (e.g. the normal shock wave, Fourier flow, Couette flow and the creep flow driven by the Maxwell demon), and the experimental data of planar heat transfer and normal shock waves in nitrogen. Then, the rarefied gas flows with strong radiation are studied based on the kinetic models, not only in the above one-dimensional gas flows, but also in the two-dimensional radiative hypersonic flow passing a cylinder. The characteristics of heat transfer in the tightly coupled fields of gas and radiation are systematically investigated, particularly the influence of the non-equilibrium photon transport and their interactions with gas molecules are revealed. It is found that the radiation makes a profound contribution to the total heat transfer in radiative hypersonic flow at an intermediate photon Knudsen number.
