The development and assessment of an efficient parallelization method for the evaluation of reaction rates in combustion simulations is presented. Combustion simulations where the finite-rate chemistry model is employed are computationally expensive. In such simulations, a transport equation for each species in the chemical reaction mechanism has to be solved, and the resulting system of equations is typically stiff. As a result, advanced implicit methods must be applied to obtain accurate solutions using reasonable time-steps at expenses of higher computational resources than explicit or classical implicit methods. In the present work, a new algorithm aimed to enhance the numerical performance of the time integration of stiffsystems of equations in parallel combustion simulations is presented. The algorithm is based on a runtime load balancing mechanism, increasing noteworthy the computational performance of the simulations, and consequently, reducing significantly the computer time required to perform the numerical combustion studies.
