An experimental and modeling study of the ignition of dimethyl carbonate in shock tubes and rapid compression machine
Ignition delay times of dimethyl carbonate DMC were measured using low- and high-pressure shock tubes and in a rapid compression machine (RCM). In this way, the effect of fuel concentration (0.75% and 1.75%), pressure (2.0, ...
An extensive experimental and modeling study of 1-butene oxidation
In this study, a series of ignition delay time (IDT) experiments of 1-butene were performed in a high-pressure shock tube (HPST) and in a rapid compression machine (RCM) under conditions of relevance to practical combustors. ...
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 ...
