Kinetic modelling of evaporation and condensation phenomena around a spherical droplet

Abstract

The steady evaporation and condensation phenomena around a spherical droplet of the condensed phase of a vapor are investigated with basis on a kinetic model to the linearized Boltzmann equation. The kinetic equation is solved via a discrete velocity method which takes into account the discontinuity of the distribution function of molecular velocities on the spherical interface. The calculations are carried out in a wide range of the gas rarefaction and evaporation-condensation coefficient. The results obtained via solution of the linearized Navier-Stokes equations with temperature and pressure jump boundary conditions are also presented and compared to those obtained via kinetic equation. A comparison between the linearized and nonlinear solutions of the kinetic model is also presented to show the limit of applicability of the linearized approach.
