You can plot the logSummary file using gnuPlot.

Thanks for suggestion. Actually I have tried reactingFoam to check the chemical and combustion part. While I always get messages like below after a period of time(0.0007s):
[0] Maximum number of iterations exceeded
[0] From function specieThermo<Thermo>::T(scalar f, scalar T0, scalar (specieThermo<Thermo>::*F)(const scalar) const, scalar (specieThermo<Thermo>::*dFdT)(const scalar) const) const
[0] in file /usr/apps1/openfoam-2.1.1/OpenFOAM-2.1.1/src/thermophysicalModels/specie/lnInclude/specieThermoI.H at line 69.
FOAM parallel run aborting

so I use tutorial case's mechanism and therm.dat...I don't know what's the problem here(even tutorial case can't run..)

I guess I can try to change the function T in speciethermoI.H like in openfoam-ext-1.6 to avoid computing ending..
if (iter++ > maxIter_)
// Improvements: graceful exit with recovery. HJ, 11/Oct/2010
"specieThermo<thermo>::T(scalar f, scalar T0, "
"scalar (specieThermo<thermo>::*F)(const scalar) const, "
"scalar (specieThermo<thermo>::*dFdT)(const scalar) const"
") const"
) << "Maximum number of iterations exceeded. Rescue by HJ"
<< endl;

// Use value where dFdT is calculated using T0. HJ, 11/Oct/2010
Tnew = f/(this->*dFdT)(T0);

return Tnew;

} while (mag(Tnew - Test) > Ttol);

Hi conceptone,

I have met the same problem as you posted, have you solved it? please let me know.
