Evaluation of chemical kinetic models with experimental data

Project Description


This software package automatically evaluates the performance of a chemical reaction mechanism using experimental data given in a specified YAML format.


The easiest way to install PyTeCK is via conda. You can install to your environment with

> conda install -c kyleniemeyer pyteck

which will also handle all the dependencies. Alternatively, you can install from PyPI with

> pip install pyteck

If you prefer to install manually, or want a particular version outside of the tagged releases distributed to those services, you can download the source files from this repository, navigate to the directory, and install using either setuptools

> python install

or pip

> pip install .

pip is recommended due to its easy uninstall option (pip uninstall pyteck).


Once installed, the full list of options can be seen using pyteck -h or pyteck --help.
