Abstract The ODEs describing a chemical kinetics system can be very stiff and are the most computationally costly part of most reactive flow simulations. Research areas ranging from combustion to climate modeling are often limited by their ability to solve these chemical ODE systems both accurately and efficiently. These problems are commonly treated with an implicit numerical method due to the stiffness that is usually present. The implicit solution technique introduces a large amount of computationa... Title of program: CHEMSODE Catalogue Id: ADDU_v1_0 Nature of problem This code is used to numerically solve systems of ODEs from chemical kinetics. It has been successfully applied as a research tool in several settings, including a full three-dimensional atmospheric chemical-radiative-transport model.
