Chemical kinetics code

Project description

ChemKinLib [![Build Status](]( [![Coverage Status](](

### Group #11: Karan R. Motwani, Shiyu Huang, Hannah Sim, and Haixing Yin.

ChemKinLib (Chemical Kinetics Library) consists of classes and functions to allow the user to interpret the kinetics of a system of chemical reaction by computing the associated reaction rates. The library currently supports:

- Elementary reactions: irreversible and reversible

And of these reactions, the following reaction rate coefficients are supported:
- Constant
- Arrhenius
- Modified Arrhenius

This Python library is designed to exhibit flexibility, extensibility, and ease of use. The initial input provided by the user is an `.xml` file while other individual parameters (temperature and concentrations) are entered during runtime.

## Installation
There are two options for installing ChemKinLib:

1) Clone the repository into you local system.

2) Execute in terminal: `python3 install` or `python3 -m pip install -e .`


1) Execute in terminal: `pip3 install chemkinlib11`

2) Try executing `import chemkinlib` to test the installation in your terminal.

## Examples
There are two examples in the `examples` subdirectory: (a) `` (system of reversible, elementary reactions) and (b) `` (system of irreversible, elementary reactions). They show the user how to set up a calculation using ChemKinLib to compute the reaction rate of each specie involved in the reactions. In addition, there is an iPython notebook tutorial (`basic-tutorial.ipynb`) that goes through the steps to compute reaction rates for a set of irreversible reactions.

## Documentation
