NEUTRAL TRANSPORT IN FLUID KINETIC TRANSITION

The neutrals in a divertor may be either in a kinetic or a fluid regime, depending on the local value of the Knudsen number tex2html_wrap_inline804, where tex2html_wrap_inline806 is the local mean free path and L is the local gradient length. This is particularly the case in detached modes of operation.
