Hello, I'm new on this forum. I'm trying to simulate a scramjet combustion chamber with rhoReactingFoam. In a first time I used the chemkin reader to upload the thermophysical properties, but I didn't know how openfoam computes the transport proprieties. So I decided to use the thermo.compressibleGas file, but it doesn't work and it stops after 49 iterations telling me that the number of iterations exceeds the maximum number. I thought that my thermo.compressibleGas file was wrong. Is there anyone having similar experience with rhoReactingFoam? Can anyone help me on the thermo.compressibleGas? What is the nmoles parameter? Should I set it on the value 1 by default or something else? Some explanation on the thermo.compressibleGas file would be very gratefully accepted. Than you!

A clarification, I use the OpenFoam version 2.2.2, the latest version. Thank you
