Chemical Kinetic Mechanisms

This on-demand course will provide you with information on the basic structure and composition of chemical kinetic mechanisms in gaseous and solid states. We will explore the process of mechanism development, testing and reduction. The differences between elementary and global reactions, as well as detailed and reduced mechanisms will be discussed. We will also examine the process of chemical kinetic modeling and a number of software tools available for this purpose.
