In Chapter 3, the example of a flat one-dimensional flame was used to show that several ingredients are needed for the solution of the conservation equations. One of these ingredients is the thermodynamic properties of each species, i. e., enthalpy H, entropy S, and heat capacities c p of each species as a function of temperature and pressure. In this chapter it will be shown how H and S are generated and used. For example, one can predict the final temperature of a flame and the species composition at this final temperature using thermodynamics.
