A quasi-steady-state solver for the stiff ordinary differential equations of reaction kinetics. (English) Zbl 0967.65083
The presented quasi-steady-state method integrates stiff ordinary differential equations arising from reaction kinetics. This predictor-corrector method is A-stable for linear equations and second-order accurate. It works well for problems typical for hydrocarbon combustion. The algorithm is described, and error analysis and linear stability analysis are included. The algorithm is applied to test problems, and the results are compared to those of the stiff integrator CHEMEQ. The method proposed in this paper is more stable and more accurate than CHEMEQ.
