CHEMKIN new reaction type (reactingFoam)
Simple problem. I am working to add a new reaction type to reactingFoam.
I am using the chemKin utility to add a new reaction. However, I'm not sure how to get chemKinReader to use my new reactionRate. I have modified the reactionRate and chemKinReader files to accept a new reactionRate type (or so I thought). But on run time it doesn't seem to like the syntax of the chemkin case file.
The attached file has the modified chemKinReader and reactionRate Files.
The reaction rate model is a solid core model.
Here's the error.
