We present a new tabulation strategy for the numerical integration of chemical reacting flow processes on the basis of a non-stiff system of equations. Both the tabulation and the identification of the non-stiff system are adaptive and are based on the Computational Singular Perturbation (CSP) method. The tabulation strategy is implemented in order to store and reuse the CSP quantities required for the construction of the non-stiff model. In this paper we describe a particular feature of this algorithm, the "homogeneous correction", that allows for an accurate and efficient identification of the manifold on which the solution moves according to the slow time scales. The improved efficiency in constructing the slow model and simulating the system dynamics along the manifold during run-time calculations is demonstrated.
