Documentation for the Chemical Equilibrium Program Package CHEPP

A program package has been developed that calculates chemical equilibrium and thermodynamic properties of reactants and products of a combustion reaction between fuel and air. The package consists of the following four parts: 1) A program for calculating chemical equilibrium. 2) A database that contains thermochemical information about the molecules, which comes from the GRI-Mech tables. 3) A GUI that allows the user to easily select fuels, fuel/air ratio for the reaction, and combustion products. 4) A set of functions designed to access the thermochemical database and the chemical equilibrium programs.

The program package is validated with respect to how well it can reproduce results shown in the standard literature. The thermodynamic properties for the individual molecules and the results from the equilibrium calculation all agree with the results shown in the literature. There is almost perfect agreement, between the results produced by the program package and those shown in the book by Heywood, when comparing the thermodynamic properties of the mixture of equilibrium products.
