In this example, we use Pyromat® data files that have been converted to standard text format [Alan K. Burnham, ''Pyrolysis Kinetics for the Bakken Shale'', Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Report UCRL-ID-109622, 1992] and [Jerry J. Sweeney, William D. Gosnold, Robert L. Braun, and Alan K. Burnham, ''A Chemical Kinetic Model of Hydrocarbon Generation from the Bakken Formation, Williston Basin, North Dakota'', Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Report UCRL-ID-112038, 1992].
The files used in Case 2 can be downloaded as: bakken.zip . All included files are text files and should be extracted to a user data folder that is not a subfolder of C:\Program Files.
