Reaction Rate

I am trying to simulate transient combution using combined time scale model. I have to plot(contour plot) the reaction rate data. I dont know how to go about it. I know there is a reaction rate variable called RATE in star-CD but dont know how to dump data into .pstt file like I am doing for other output quantities available on the GUI. Any comments and help is appreciated.

Re: Reaction Rate
I have experienced this same case.

to say shortly, there are not kind of reaction rate button in STAR-CD.

however, there are the method that you can know the reaction rate in STAR-CD.

you can use register calculation.

you know equation of the reaction rate(in my case of hybrid reaction model, I used EBU+chemical reaction rate) and then you should make program using STAR-CD commend. finally sorting using fortran or C++ anything..

I don't know combined time model, because program for STAR-CD commend have post data of *.pst or *.pstt files

at first you can show your reaction model. may I think that it's very complex.
