Abstract

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.

Objective of the training

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.

Learning outcomes

On completion of this course, you will be able to :

  • nstall CANTERA software,
  • to use the Python interface of CANTERA,
  • to program your own kinetics simulations that use small or reduced reaction mechanisms,
  • to generate a CANTERA input file from CHEMKIN input files,
  • to compare different chemistries.

Target participants

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

Prerequisites

Firstly, in order to follow this course, you need to have:

  • knowledge of Unix commands.
  • basic knowledge of Python.

To verify that the prerequisites are satisfied, the following questionnaires must be completed. You need to get at least 75% of correct answers in order to be authorized to follow this training session. If you don’t succeed it, your subscription will not be validated. You only have two chances to complete them.

Questionnaire 1 : https://forms.gle/xPMXz2Snc7KBQiPG8

Questionnaire 2 : https://forms.gle/tgfKkoSy1H6SPhg86

Secondly, you need to have followed the online course “Fundamentals of Turbulent Combustion” organized by Cerfacs or at least live lessons on combustion.

Rem-Sophia MOURADI, PhD student at CERFACS  and EDF R&D Hydraulic Department, has been awarded of the "Outstanding Student Poster", during the EGU General Assembly 2019 (European Geosciences Union). This international conference gathers each year about 16 000 scientists with 6 000 oral presentations and 10 000 posters. Among the 2 500 posters presented by PhD students, fifty only are awarded with this price, that to say 2%.
