An ignition delay time and chemical kinetic modeling study of the pentane isomers
Ignition delay times of n-pentane, iso-pentane, and neo-pentane mixtures were measured in two shock tubes and in a rapid compression machine. The experimental data were used as validation targets for the model described ...
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 ...
Optimized reaction mechanism rate rules for ignition of normal alkanes
The increasing demand for cleaner combustion and reduced greenhouse gas emissions motivates research on the combustion of hydrocarbon fuels and their surrogates. Accurate detailed chemical kinetic models are an important ...
Modeling nitrogen species as pollutants: thermochemical influences
(American Chemical Society, 2016-08-22)
To simulate emissions of nitrogen-containing compounds in practical combustion environments, it is necessary to have accurate values for their thermochemical parameters, as well as accurate kinetic values to describe the ...
An experimental and modelling study of n-pentane oxidation in two jet-stirred reactors: The importance of pressure-dependent kinetics and new reaction pathways
Two jet-stirred reactors (JSRs) coupled to gas chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques have been utilised to detect chemical species evolved during n -pentane oxidation at 1 and 10 atm, in the temperature range 500-1100 ...
