Chapman-Enskog Approach for Non-Uniform Granular Gases
For slightly non-uniform gases with small gradients of the hydrodynamic fields, the velocity distribution can be written as a perturbation expansion f = f + f + f +..., where f depends on the kth order of the gradients. This chapter derives a set of entangled equations for f. The Chapman–Enskog schemes provides a technique for solving these equations and calculating the transport coefficients.
