Substitute foamchemistry with CHEMKIN in reactingFoam
Hi at all,
I have to use my chemistry file for the reactingFoam solver. I search in the forum for a solution but all that I've find is a tip about the usage of chemkinToFoam. I tried to do this but it give me an error:

a lot of chemical species and then

From function HashTable<T, Key, Hash>::operator[](const Key&)
in file /home/opencfd/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.1.1/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/HashTableI.H at line 117.

FOAM exiting

I'm looking for a way switch the chemistry solver from foamchemistry to chemkin. Until now, I've changed the keyword in thermophysicalProperties from foamChemistryFile to CHEMKINFile and from foamChemistryThermoFile to CHEMKINThermoFile with its own folder path but it not succeeds. What I've to change more?

thank you very much.
