Try the OpenSMOKE++ Suite

Do you need to simulate ideal reactors or laminar 1D flames? Why do not try the OpenSMOKE++ Suite from CRECK Modeling Lab? The OpenSMOKE++ Suite is a collection of standard solvers for modeling the typical systems of interest in developing and testing detailed kinetic mechanisms (including thousands of species and reactions).
