Is this the first time you install FlameMaster ?


The code is available to anyone who seriously wants to use it. The documentation is very sparse, but the package comes with many examples for:

  • Homogeneous reactor or plug flow reactor
  • Steady counterflow diffusion flames with potential flow or plug flow boundary conditions
  • Freely propagating premixed flame
  • Steady flamelet equationUnsteady flamelet equations


Version 3.1 include an improved Newton solver for 1D flame computations providing better convergence, new sensitivity analysis for homogeneous reactor computations, more documentation, and more support for generating flamelet libraries.

Version 3.3 include a few bug fixes that should make installation easier.

Version 3.3.1 include a few bug fixes, easier installation, and support for windows based computers.

Version 3.3.9 has two major new features. First, it attempts to compile with Windows, and it does, if you do it right, but the present installation instructions might be incomplete. This will be updated soon. Second, all fortran source code has been replaced by C code. Therefore, a fortran compiler is no longer necessary for the installation.

Version 3.3.10 fixes some issues with installation on different machines and adds the perfectly stirred reactor as a new configuration. It installs on LINUX and Mac OSX based computers, but now also on windows computers. Fortran compilers are no longer required It fixes some installation issues on different machines and provides better description for windows installation.

  • Time given in degrees crank angle before TDC
  • Scalar dissipation rate distribution from KIVA calculation

NOTES for previous users

  • Because of the use of CVODE instead of DASSL, the installation procedure has slightly changed.
  • Version 3.3.9 originally used CVODE version 2.5.0 (or sundials package version 2.3.0). The new CVODE version 2.6.0 (sundials version 2.4.0) and later requires different function calls. This is now the default, but older CVODE version can still be used. This is described in the README file.


This is a beta version of FlameMaster which uses CMake:
