    • Cyclopentane combustion. Part II. Ignition delay measurements and mechanism validation 

      Al Rashidi, Mariam J.; Mármol, Juan C.; Banyon, Colin; Sajid, Muhammad B.; Mehl, Marco; Pitz, William J.; Mohamed, Samah; Alfazazi, Adamu; Lu, Tianfeng; Curran, Henry J.; Farooq, Aamir; Sarathy, S. Mani (Elsevier, 2017-06-12)
      This study reports cyclopentane ignition delay measurements over a wide range of conditions. The measurements were obtained using two shock tubes and a rapid compression machine, and were used to test a detailed low- and ...
    • An experimental and kinetic modeling study of the pyrolysis and oxidation of n-C-3-C-5 aldehydes in shock tubes 

      Pellucci, Matteo; Somers, Kieran P.; Yasunaga, Kenji; Burke, Ultan; Alessio, Frassoldati; Ranzi, Eliseo; Curran, Henry J.; Faravelli, Tiziano (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2015-08-24)
      Due to the increasing interest in the use of biofuels for energy production, it is of great importance to better understand the combustion and thermal decomposition characteristics of species such as aldehydes. These are ...
    • An ignition delay time and chemical kinetic modeling study of the pentane isomers 

      Bugler, John; Heufer, Karl A.; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2016-10-26)
      Ignition delay times of n-pentane, iso-pentane, and neo-pentane mixtures were measured in two shock tubes and in a rapid compression machine. The experimental data were used as validation targets for the model described ...
