Reacting flow simulations with detailed chemical kinetics are important to a broad range of applications in gas turbine combustors and IC engines, chemical and pharmaceutical reactors, and power generation equipment. With the advances in computational power and software capabilities simulations with detailed chemical kinetics have proven to be feasible now. However, the combination of complex physics and chemical kinetics poses challenging modeling questions and frequently results in numerically stiff problems.
