Using Cantera for combustion problems Email This Post Print This Post

A previous post presented Cantera, a package for thermodynamics, kinetic and transport calculations. Cantera is a function library with object-oriented features that can be use in C++, Fortran, Matlab, and Python applications. One of its main strength may be the functions for combustion problems. In this sense it is possible to do equilibrium and kinetic calculations.

Let us talk about an easy sample which you wish to calculate the adiabatic flame temperature for stoichiometric combustion of methane using air:
