The study of the nonequilibrium distributions in open systems with complex kinetic processes is performed. The nonuniform relaxation problems (NRP) are solved. Previous solutions of NRP have demonstrated nonclassical transfer properties in the relaxation zones for monatomic simple gases, for mixtures of simple gases and for molecular gases. In the present paper for the first time more complex structures for mixtures of four chemically reacting gases are investigated by means of kinetic model equations. Nonclassical effects are observed in simulations. It is discussed how this can allow us to simulate properties of complex nonequilibrium systems and, in particular, the role of the nonequilibrium entropy (−H-function) is also considered.
