    The Enskog hard-spheres modification of the Boltzmann equation together with an appropriate mean field is used to study high-multiplicity events in relativistic heavy-ion collisions. We observe a small effect on the pion yield for the system Ar on Ar (800 MeV/nucleon) and the manifestation of collective flow for Nb+Nb (400 MeV/nucleon).
