This dissertation specializes in the calculation of shipping coefficients within the subject created in a relativistic heavy-ion collision after chemical freeze-out. This topic will be good approximated utilizing a pion fuel out of equilibrium. We describe the theoretical framework had to receive the shear and bulk viscosities, the thermal and electric conductivities and the flavour diffusion coefficients of a meson fuel at low temperatures.
