ABSTRACT
Transport properties of high-temperature helium and hydrogen plasmas as well as Jupiter atmosphere have been calculated for equilibrium and nonequilibrium conditions using higher approximations of the Chapman-Enskog method. A complete database of transport cross sections for relevant interactions has been derived, including minority species, by using both ab initio and phenomenological potentials. Inelastic collision integrals terms, due to resonant charge-exchange channels, have been also considered.

    Cercignani's second-order slip model has been neglected over the years, perhaps due to Sreekanth's claim that it cannot fit his experimental data. In this paper we show that Sreekanth's claim was based on an incorrect interpretation of this model. We also show that Cercignani's second-order slip...

First, we adopt a phenomenological approach where, in order to single out the main features of the model, the decay branching...
