In this paper we aim at describing the hydrodynamic limit of a mixture of chemically reacting gases. Starting from kinetic Boltzmann-type equations, we derive Grad's 13-moments equations for single species. Then, after scaling such equations in terms of a suitable Knudsen number, we apply an asymptotic Chapman-Enskog procedure in order to build up hydrodynamic equations of Navier-Stokes type.

We present in this paper the formal passage from a kinetic model to the incompressible Navier−Stokes equations for a mixture of monoatomic gases with different masses. The starting point of this derivation is the collection of coupled Boltzmann equations for the mixture of gases. The diffusion coefficients for the concentrations of the species, as well as the ones appearing in the equations for velocity and temperature, are explicitly computed under the Maxwell molecule assumption in terms of the...

We show that the entropy method, that has been used successfully in order to prove exponential convergence towards equilibrium with explicit constants in many contexts, among which reaction-diffusion systems coming out of reversible chemistry, can also be used when one considers a reaction-diffusion system corresponding to an irreversible mechanism of dissociation/recombination, for which no natural entropy is available.

Starting from the Grad 13-moment equations for a bimolecular chemical reaction, Navier-Stokes-type equations are derived by asymptotic procedure in the limit of small mean paths. Two physical situations of slow and fast reactions, with their different hydrodynamic variables and conservation equations, are considered separately, yielding different limiting results.
