NKReac -- Total number of reactions

Type and Attributes



NKReac is the total number of different types of reactions, including surface reactions and radiation imprisonment reactions.

NKReac is calculated by counting the reactions defined in CHEM_REACTION NAMELIST groups. The number of reactions counted in each NAMELIST depends on the type of arrow (single or double ended) used in the reaction field or on the value of the opposing property and type of species indicated in the reactants and products lists:



In the previous version of the manual a formula for counting the reactions was given. However, handling of vibrational groups has been expanded and the previous formula is now valid only for certain types of reactions involving vibrational levels. In the present version of PLASMAKIN several formulas are used to cover other types of reactions and the interested reader must look directly into the code to see the appropriate formula for each case.
