CERFACS Chemistry Sharing knowledge for CFD chemical kinetics

Numerical tools for complex chemistry simulations: the open source CANTERA solver

  Monday 19 November 2018

  CERFACS, Toulouse - France    

Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training
Duration : 1 day / (7 hours)


This training session provides the participants with an introduction to CANTERA, a suite of object-oriented software tools for problems involving chemical kinetics, thermodynamics, and/or transport processes. CANTERA is an open source software, comparable to the CHEMKIN or COSILAB simulation tools, currently used for applications including used for applications including combustion, detonations, plasmas… Participants will get an overview of what it is possible to do with CANTERA, from the installation of the code with insights on its architecture and underlying methods to hands-on sessions enabling script generation and testing.

Target participants
This training session is for engineers, combustionists, physicists, and students who wish to learn how to use an efficient and free software for problems involving chemical kinetics.

Unix, Python and some basic knowledge of C/C++.
