I am new in OpenFoam and I have questions about application solvers for combustion. I work with combustion in spark ignition engines and the mean goal of my work is to know the behavior of chemical species and flame front.

I run kivaTest but seems to me that the application engineFoam is an approximate model for combustion.

My question is that if I want a detailed model for combustion I should use the reactionFoam or XiFoam in KivaTest. Beside that, for a HCCI model should I use chemFoam?

Finally, Is there a "real" documentation that explains the combustion models in OpenFoam?
