    • An experimental and chemical kinetic modeling study of 1,3-butadiene combustion: Ignition delay time and laminar flame speed measurements 

      Zhou, Chong-Wen; Li, Yang; Burke, Ultan; Banyon, Colin; Somers, Kieran P.; Ding, Shuiting; Khan, Saadat; Hargis, Joshua W.; Sikes, Travis; Mathieu, Olivier; Petersen, Eric L.; AlAbbad, Mohammed; Farooq, Aamir; Pan, Youshun; Zhang, Yingjia; Huang, Zuohua; Lopez, Joseph; Loparo, Zachary; Vasu, Subith S.; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2018-09-10)
      Ignition delay times for 1,3-butadiene oxidation were measured in five different shock tubes and in a rapid compression machine (RCM) at thermodynamic conditions relevant to practical combustors. The ignition delay times ...
    • Small ester combustion chemistry: Computational kinetics and experimental study of methyl acetate and ethyl acetate 

      Ahmed, Ahfaz; Pitz, William J.; Cavallotti, Carlo; Mehl, Marco; Lokachari, Nitin; Nilsson, Elna J. K.; Wang, Jui-Yang; Konnov, Alexander A.; Wagnon, Scott W.; Chen, Bingjie; Wang, Zhandong; Kim, Seonah; Curran, Henry J.; Klippenstein, Stephen J.; Roberts, William L.; Sarathy, S. Mani (Elsevier, 2018-07-17)
      Small esters represent an important class of high octane biofuels for advanced spark ignition engines. They qualify for stringent fuel screening standards and could be synthesized through various pathways. In this work, ...
