NSF Funding for Cantera Development

The CoMoChEng group at Northeastern University is part of a collaborative effort to further develop and support the successful and popular open-source modeling software Cantera, a suite of tools for problems involving chemical kinetics, thermodynamics, and transport processes.

Together, we recently secured $2.5m funding from the NSF Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC) under the Cyberinfrastructure for Sustained Scientific Innovation (CSSI) program. The project, titled “Frameworks: Collaborative Research: Extensible and Community-Driven Thermodynamics, Transport, and Chemical Kinetics Modeling with Cantera: Expanding to Diverse Scientific Domains“, will develop the Cantera software platform in service of three objectives: (i) extend Cantera’s scientific capabilities to support the development of transformative technologies; (ii) expand Cantera’s user base in fields including electrochemistry, heterogeneous catalysis, and atmospheric chemistry; and (iii) broaden participation in the software’s development and management to improve Cantera’s sustainability and usability.
