Slip conditions with wall catalysis and radiation for multicomponent, nonequilibrium gas flowThe slip conditions for a multicomponent mixture with diffusion, wall-catalyzed atom recombination and thermal radiation are derived, and simplified expressions for engineering applications are presented. The gas mixture may be in chemical nonequilibrium with finite-rate catalytic recombination occurring on the wall. These boundary conditions, which are used for rarefied flow regime flow field calculations, are shown to be necessary for accurate predictions of skin friction and heat transfer coefficients in the rarefied portion of the space shuttle trajectory.
