Abstract: The integration of the stiff ODE systems associated with chemical kinetics is the most computationally demanding task in most practical combustion simulations. The introduction of detailed reaction mechanisms in multi-dimensional simulations is limited by unfavorable scaling of the stiff ODE solution methods with the mechanism’s size. In this paper, we compare the efficiency and the appropriateness of direct and Krylov subspace sparse iterative solvers to speed-up the integration of combustion chemistry ODEs, …
