In the framework of the active and regenerative cooling of hypersonic and space structures, a kinetic mechanism should be proposed to investigate numerically the fuel pyrolysis and the coke formation with a possible surface effect (catalytic reactions). This chemical mechanism should be suitable for computational fluid dynamics approach (limited number of species and reactions). For this purpose, this work presents some homogeneous and heterogeneous calculations of methane chemistry with metallic catalysts in order to test different kinetic schemes. A parametric study is performed and the behaviors of several reactors are characterized.
