Including heat of reaction in enthalpy
I am using Fluent 5.0 with the coupled solver and finite rate chemistry.

The manual states that the heat of reaction is included as a source term in the energy equation.

What I would like to do is include the heat of reaction in the definition of enthalpy - removing it from the energy source term. Is this possible? I know that this is the approach used with the PDF formulation, but PDF is only available for the segregated solver.
