Title

Transport Properties Associated with Entry into the Atmosphere of Titan

Abstract

The transport properties in the atmosphere of Titan and at the shock front and the probe surface for non-ablative entry into Titan's atmosphere are calculated, using the kinetic theory of gases. the species N2, H2, CH4, HCN, N, and H contribute to the transport properties under these conditions. the transport properties were calculated by using accurate potential energy curves for each of the thirteen two-body interactions which occur between these species. Results are given for the binary diffusion coefficients, the non-reactive and reactive thermal conductivity, and the viscosity from 1000° to 8000°K.
