The interaction between the two Maxwell flows of general form in a gas of rough spheres is studied. The approximate solution of the Bryan–Pidduck equation describing the interaction is a bimodal distribution with specially selected coefficient functions. It is shown that under certain additional conditions imposed on these functions and hydrodynamic parameters of the flows, the norm of the difference between the parts of the Bryan–Pidduck equation can be arbitrarily small.
