Hello, I am presently plann
I am presently planning my research fund at the moment and want to know if i need to buy the CHEMKIN software.
I am pretty new to OpenFOAM and have started to adopt the code to compute laminar burning velocities for spherical explosions. I want to use chemical kinetic modelling, however Id rather not buy a CHEMKIN licence unless it is necessary to my own study. What does the OpenFOAM code actually require from the CHEMKIN package, is it only the CHEMKIN *.INP files such as those supplied with the ReactingFoam tutorial? Presently, the ReactingFOAM tutorial runs without any problems.
I have no plans to develop my own chemical scheme but I would like to attempt to implement others widely available in the literature. Hence, is it possible to do this without CHEMKIN by manipulating the *.INP files by hand?
Thanks in advance for any help.
OpenFOAM does not require anyt
OpenFOAM does not require anything from the chemkin package.
It has its own implementation to read the .inp and .dat files together with a few stiff ODE schemes to treat the kinetics.
