Support Cantera!

Cantera is an open-access software suite which helps users solve problems involving thermodynamics, chemical reaction rates, and fluid transport processes.  The software is written to be flexible and efficient, handling these calculations in a way that lets the user shift their attention to other elements of their calculations.  Because it is open source, the software can be easily extended to support the needs of any particular researcher.


For these reasons, Cantera has been adopted by a wide range of users across diverse research fields.  Its largest user base is in the combustion field, but Cantera has also seen applications in energy storage (such as batteries and fuel cells), geochemistry, chemical processing, thin film deposition, plasma science, and atmospheric/astronomical chemistry.
