Dry Air Boltzmann Analysis
Application ID: 109631
This model solves the Boltzmann equation in two-term approximation for a mixture of nitrogen and oxygen representing a background gas of dry air. Electron transport coefficients and source terms are computed by suitable integration of the electron energy distribution function over electron impact cross sections. It is shown how to prepare the electron energy distribution function to export so that is can be used in the Plasma interface.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
