Kintech Lab - Intagrated Tools for Inventive Solutions


The development of combustion mechanisms in a wide range of pressures (0.1-200 atm) and temperatures (600 K < T < 4000 K), mechanism reduction, and its application at full-scale CFD simulation is one of important fields of activity of Kintech Lab. The results of the are intensively used for different industrial applications.

Special procedure of mechanism development is based on a new methodology of using of state-of-the-art approaches for recovering the parameters of chemical reactions, thermodynamic and transport properties of substances (multiscale, multiphysics approach).

Kintech Lab capabilities in mechanism generation are strongly supported by the Kintech software products, Chemical Workbench and Khimera, which are a special computational environment for mechanism generation and testing.
