This chapter considers a highly inhomogeneous granular gas with small spatial gradients of temperature and density. It derives equations for the zero, the first, and the second moments of the velocity distribution function which characterize the density, flow velocity, and the temperature of the gas. A closed set of hydrodynamic equations are obtained by introducing phenomenological kinetic coefficients such as shear viscosity, thermal conductivity, etc.

Keywords:   granular gas, velocity distribution function, density, flow velocity, hydrodynamic equations
