On the Structure and Closure-Condition of the Hydrodynamic Model
Basing on a general formulation of the hydrodynamic model for semiconductor devices , a consistent approach to the solution of the model equations is proposed, along with a method for selezting the closure condition. The definition of the coefficients of the hydrodynamic and energy-transport models is then re-examined in order to make a comparison between them possible. Finally, the closure condition is discussed and compared with others proposed in the literature.
