Dear Foamers

I want to add methanol as a specie in thermo.compressibleGas file for reactingFoam and fireFoam solvers.

The followings are the lines that must be filled:

Code:
CH3OH
{
    specie
    {
        nMoles          1;
        molWeight      32.040;
    }
    thermodynamics
    {
        Tlow            200;
        Thigh           5000;
        Tcommon         1000;
        highCpCoeffs    (     );
        lowCpCoeffs     (     );
    }
    transport
    {
        As              1.67212e-06;
        Ts              170.672;
    }
}
My question is where can I find the high and low Cp Coefficients of methanol for this range

Regards
Bobi

Dear Foamers

Cause maybe some other people want to try other fuels rather than conventional ones. I have found a report that has NASA Polynomial coefficients for all speices including methanol:

refer to: B.J. McBride, S. Gordon, M.A. Reno, Nasa Technical Memorandum 4513 (1993)
