    Sarathy, S. Mani; Javed, Tamour; Karsenty, Florent; Heufer, Alexander; Wang, Weijing; Park, Sungwoo; Elwardany, Ahmed; Farooq, Aamir; Westbrook, Charles K.; Pitz, William J.; Oehlschlaeger, Matthew A.; Dayma, Guillaume; Curran, Henry J.; Dagaut, Philippe (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2014-01-16)
    Iso-paraffinic molecular structures larger than seven carbon atoms in chain length are commonly found in conventional petroleum, Fischer-Tropsch (FT), and other alternative hydrocarbon fuels, but little research has been ...
  • A comprehensive iso-octane combustion model with improved thermochemistry and chemical kinetics 

    Atef, Nour; Kukkadapu, Goutham; Mohamed, Samah Y.; Al Rashidi, Mariam J.; Al Rashidi, Mariam; Banyon, Colin; Mehl, Marco; Heufer, Karl Alexander; Nasir, Ehson F.; Alfazazi, A.; Das, Apurba K.; Westbrook, Charles K.; Pitz, William J.; Lu, Tianfeng; Farooq, Aamir; Sung, Chih-Jen; Curran, Henry J.; Sarathy, S. Mani (Elsevier, 2017-02-05)
    Iso-Octane (2,2,4-trimethylpentane) is a primary reference fuel and an important component of gasoline fuels. Moreover, it is a key component used in surrogates to study the ignition and burning characteristics of gasoline ...
  • Experimental and kinetic modeling study of 2-methyl-2-butene: allylic hydrocarbon kinetics 

    Westbrook, Charles K.; Pitz, William J.; Mehl, Marco; Glaude, Pierre-Alexandre; Herbinet, Olivier; Bax, Sarah; Battin-Leclerc, Frederique; Mathieu, Olivier; Petersen, Eric L.; Bugler, John; Curran, Henry J. (American Chemical Society, 2015-03-20)
    Two experimental studies have been carried out on the oxidation of 2-methyl-2-butene, one measuring ignition delay times behind reflected shock waves in a stainless steel shock tube, and the other measuring fuel, intermediate, ...
  • An experimental and modeling study of shock tube and rapid compression machine ignition of n-butylbenzene/air mixtures 

    Nakamura, Hisashi; Darcy, Daniel; Mehl, Marco; Tobin, Colin J.; Metcalfe, Wayne K.; Pitz, William J.; Westbrook, Charles K.; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2013-08-28)
    In our previous work (D. Darcy, C.J. Tobin, K. Yasunaga, J.M. Simmie, J. Wurmel, W.K. Metcalfe, T. Niass, S.S. Ahmed, C.K. Westbrook, H.J. Curran, Combust. Flame 159 (2012) 2219-2232), ignition delay times of n-butylbenzene ...
  • An experimental and modeling study of surrogate mixtures of n-propyl- and n-butylbenzene in n-heptane to simulate n-decylbenzene ignition 

    Darcy, D,Nakamura, H,Tobin, CJ,Mehl, M,Metcalfe, WK,Pitz, WJ,Westbrook, CK,Curran, HJ; Darcy, Daniel; Nakamura, Hisashi; Tobin, Colin J.; Mehl, Marco; Metcalfe, Wayne K.; Pitz, William J.; Westbrook, Charles K.; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2014-01-11)
    This paper presents experimental data for the oxidation of two surrogates for the large alkylbenzene class of compounds contained in diesel fuels, namely n-decylbenzene. A 57:43 molar% mixture of n-propylbenzene:n-heptane ...
  • An experimental and modeling study of the shock tube ignition of a mixture of n-heptane and n-propylbenzene as a surrogate for a large alkyl benzene 

    Darcy, Daniel; Mehl, Marco; Simmie, John M.; Würmel, Judith; Westbrook, Charles K.; Pitz, William J. (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2012-07-11)
    Alkyl aromatics are an important chemical class in gasoline, jet and diesel fuels. In the present work, an n-propylbenzene and n-heptane mixture is studied as a possible surrogate for large alkyl benzenes contained in ...
  • A high-pressure rapid compression machine study of n-propylbenzene ignition 

    Darcy, Daniel; Tobin, Colin; Metcalfe, Wayne; Pitz, William J.; Nakamura, Hisashi; Westbrook, Charles K.; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2013-08-28)
    This study presents new ignition delay data measured in a rapid compression machine over a wide range temperature, pressure and fuel/air ratio. This data is an extension of that measured previously (D. Darcy, C.J. Tobin, ...
