I am interested to include chemical reaction of dissociation of CO2(carbon dioxide) in dsmcFoam openFoam.How can I include the above reaction in dsmcFoamWhere to write this reaction as input

I read somewhere that dsmcFoam already include 5-species air chemistry model N 2 , O 2 , NO, N, O using quantum-kinetic (QK) model.The DSMC technique normally models air as either a 5‐species mixture ( N 2 , O 2 , N , O , NO ) using dissociation, recombination and exchange reactions or as a mixture of 11 species
( N 2 , N 2 + , O 2 , O 2 + , NO , NO + , N , N + , O , O + , e − )

I am also interested to use the quantum-kinetic (QK) model with dsmcFoam.

Have you got any idea ?

Hello,I’m interested whether you have got the answer? If so,could you tell me how to modify the parameters,such as dissociation Temperature and ionisation Temperature?
