A comprehensive iso-octane combustion model with improved thermochemistry and chemical kinetics
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 ...
Probing the low-temperature chemistry of ethanol via the addition of dimethyl ether
Considering the importance of ethanol (EtOH) as an engine fuel and a key component of surrogate fuels, the further understanding of its auto-ignition and oxidation characteristics at engine-relevant conditions (high pressures ...
An RCM experimental and modeling study on CH4 and CH4/C2H6 oxidation at pressures up to 160 bar
The oxidation of CH4 and CH4/C2H6 mixtures were studied at pressures relevant to knocking in large bore natural gas engines. The experiments were carried out in a rapid compression machine (RCM) at end of compression (EOC) ...
Cyclopentane combustion. Part II. Ignition delay measurements and mechanism validation
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 ...
Autoignition characteristics of oxygenated gasolines
Gasoline anti-knock quality, defined by the research and motor octane numbers (RON and MON), is important for increasing spark ignition (SI) engine efficiency. Gasoline knock resistance can be increased using a number of ...
