can't import San Diego Mechanism
Hello everybody,
I am trying to import the San Diego Mechanism for natural gas combustion. I always get the error: species not found in thermo database, but if I open the database file with the note pad the species are there.
Any idea ?

never see this error message before.
I will suggest u change the material to default material in Fluent to see if its works. (try on propane or metane maybe)
If those default species works, i guess ur imported species method might have something wrong.
