Abstract
The current thesis deals with the development of a computational framework for performing plasma chemistry simulations and their uncertainty quantification analysis by suitably combining and extending existing open source computational tools. A plasma chemistry solver is implemented in the OpenFOAM C++ solver suite. The OpenFOAM plasma chemistry application solves the species conservation equations and the electron energy equation by accounting suitably for various production and loss terms based on the provided reaction set. The OpenFOAM solver is initially used to study a simple two-reaction zero-dimensional argon plasma with one ionization reaction and one re...
