class rmgpy.kinetics.PDepArrhenius(pressures=None, arrhenius=None, highPlimit=None, Tmin=None, Tmax=None, Pmin=None, Pmax=None, comment='')

A kinetic model of a phenomenological rate coefficient $$k(T,P)$$ where a set of Arrhenius kinetics are stored at a variety of pressures and interpolated between on a logarithmic scale. The attributes are:

Pmin

The minimum pressure in bar at which the model is valid, or zero if unknown or undefined

Pmax

The maximum pressure in bar at which the model is valid, or zero if unknown or undefined

efficiencies

A dict associating chemical species with associated efficiencies

order

The reaction order (1 = first, 2 = second, etc.)

comment

Information about the model (e.g. its source)

The pressure-dependent Arrhenius formulation is sometimes used to extend the Arrhenius expression to handle pressure-dependent kinetics. The formulation simply parameterizes $$A$$, $$n$$, and $$E_\mathrm{a}$$ to be dependent on pressure:

$k(T,P) = A(P) \left( \frac{T}{T_0} \right)^{n(P)} \exp \left( -\frac{E_\mathrm{a}(P)}{RT} \right)$

Although this suggests some physical insight, the $$k(T,P)$$ data is often highly complex and non-Arrhenius, limiting the usefulness of this formulation to simple systems.

Pmax

The maximum pressure at which the model is valid, or None if not defined.

Pmin

The minimum pressure at which the model is valid, or None if not defined.

Tmax

The maximum temperature at which the model is valid, or None if not defined.

Tmin

The minimum temperature at which the model is valid, or None if not defined.

Fit the pressure-dependent Arrhenius model to a matrix of rate coefficient data K with units of kunits corresponding to a set of temperatures Tlist in K and pressures Plist in Pa. An Arrhenius model is fit cpdef change_rate(self, double factor)at each pressure.

get_cantera_efficiencies(self, species_list)

Returns a dictionary containing the collider efficiencies for this PDepKineticsModel object suitable for setting the efficiencies in the following cantera reaction objects: ThreeBodyReaction, FalloffReaction,ChemicallyActivatedReaction

get_effective_collider_efficiencies(self, list species) ndarray

Return the effective collider efficiencies for all species in the form of a numpy array. This function helps assist rapid effective pressure calculations in the solver.

Return the effective pressure in Pa for a system at a given pressure P in Pa composed of the given list of species (Species or Molecule objects) with the given fractions.

get_rate_coefficient(self, double T, double P=0) double

Return the rate coefficient in the appropriate combination of m^3, mol, and s at temperature T in K and pressure P in Pa.

highPlimit

rmgpy.kinetics.model.KineticsModel

Type:

highPlimit

is_identical_to(self, KineticsModel other_kinetics) bool

Returns True if kinetics matches that of another kinetics model. Each duplicate reaction must be matched and equal to that in the other PDepArrhenius model in the same order. Otherwise returns False

is_pressure_dependent(self) bool

Return True since all objects derived from PDepKineticsModel represent pressure-dependent kinetics.

is_pressure_valid(self, double P) bool

Return True if the pressure P in Pa is within the valid pressure range of the kinetic data, or False if not. If the minimum and maximum pressure are not defined, True is returned.

is_similar_to(self, KineticsModel other_kinetics) bool

Returns True if rates of reaction at temperatures 500,1000,1500,2000 K and 1 and 10 bar are within +/ .5 for log(k), in other words, within a factor of 3.

is_temperature_valid(self, double T) bool

Return True if the temperature T in K is within the valid temperature range of the kinetic data, or False if not. If the minimum and maximum temperature are not defined, True is returned.

pressures
