## General chemical kinetics computer program for static and flow reactions, with application to combustion and shock-tube kineticsDavid A. Bittker, Vincent J. Scullin, United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Lewis Research Center A general chemical kinetics program is described for complex, homogeneous ideal-gas reactions in any chemical system. Its main features are flexibility and convenience in treating many different reaction conditions. The program solves numerically the differential equations describing complex reaction in either a static system or one-dimensional inviscid flow. Applications include ignition and combustion, shock wave reactions, and general reactions in a flowing or static system. An implicit numerical solution method is used which works efficiently for the extreme conditions of a very slow or a very fast reaction. The theory is described, and the computer program and users' manual are included. |
