CHETAH 10.0, the ASTM Computer Program for the Prevention of Reactive and Flammability Hazards



The uses of the ASTM computer program CHETAH were described. The recently released version 10 is capable of accomplishing five different kinds of calculations related to chemical thermodynamics. The program enables the prediction of chemical reactive hazards, heats of reaction for combustion and other types of reactions, and a variety of flammability parameters. It can accomplish these calculations making use of its large internal databases of thermochemical properties or by making use of predictive methods for chemicals for which properties have yet to be determined.
