Towards a kinetic understanding of the NOx promoting-effect on ignition of coalbed methane: A case study of methane/nitrogen dioxide mixtures
Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is an important impurity in coal-bed methane (CBM) and a dominant component of NOx pollution in practical engines. Its promoting effect on methane ignition has been studied in the current experimental ...
Modeling ignition of a heptane isomer: improved thermodynamics, reaction pathways, kinetics, and rate rule optimizations for 2-methylhexane
(American Chemical Society, 2016-03-21)
Accurate chemical kinetic combustion models of lightly branched alkanes (e.g., 2-methylalkanes) are important to investigate the combustion behavior of real fuels. Improving the fidelity of existing kinetic models is a ...
