An asymptotic solution of the Enskog equation is obtained by an expansion in two parameters: ε, estimating the deviation from equilibrium and ε, the Knudsen number. It is shown that different relations between these parameters imply that the different versions of approximate hydrodynamic equations are consistent. A second-order approximated solution of the Enskog equation in the case of E≈ε[SUB1] provides nonlinear hydrodynamic equations for dissipative incompressible flows as the most appropriate approximation.
