Couette flow of a binary gas mixture
The linearized binary model described by Hamel [Phys. Fluids 8, 418 (1964)] is used to obtain a set of kinetic equations and boundary conditions for the Couette flow problem. The derived set of two coupled integrodifferential equations is solved by iteration implementing standard discretization techniques. Highly accurate numerical results are presented for the mass velocity distribution and the total shear stress of the binary gas system.
