I am new to OpenFOAM and want to use it to simulate laminar diffusion flames. For that I see that I need diffusion models. I am using CHEMKIN inp files for chemistry and the thermodynamic properties.
I want to know where OpenFOAM reads the files, parses them and stores the information (The thermodynamic data in particular) in the files.
I have not worked too much in C++ either, so I am on a rather steep learning curve here.
Thanks in advance.
