Cantera Workshop

2–5 pm, Sunday, 25 March 2018

Cantera is an open-source suite of object-oriented software tools for problems involving kinetics, thermodynamics, and/or transport. Among other things, it can be used to:

  • Evaluate thermodynamic and transport properties of mixtures
  • Compute chemical equilibrium
  • Evaluate species chemical production rates
  • Conduct kinetics simulations with large reaction mechanisms
  • Simulate one-dimensional flames
  • Conduct reaction path analysis
  • Create process simulations using networks of stirred reactors
  • Model non-ideal fluids

This Workshop and Forum will cover basic usage of Cantera, getting started with Cantera development, and a Q&A session regarding future directions for Cantera. The Workshop will be hosted by Prof. Steven DeCaluwe, one of the contributing developers to Cantera.

Everyone is welcome, and we especially encourage new users to attend! Further information is available at and attendees should RSVP by filling out the form at

The workshop will be located in Dining Hall 205 from 2–5 pm.
