A detailed chemical kinetic modeling, ignition delay time and jet-stirred reactor study of methanol oxidation
A shock tube (ST) and a rapid compression machine (RCM) have been used to measure new ignition delay times for methanol oxidation over a wide range of pressures (2-50 atm) and equivalence ratios (0.5, 1.0, and 2.0). These ...
An experimental and modeling study of nitromethane + O2 + N2 ignition in a shock tube
The ignition of nitromethane/O-2/N-2 mixtures was investigated via shock tube experiments in the temperature range 947-1333 K at reflected shock pressures near 8, 16 and 32 atm. The ignition was recorded as the intensity ...
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 ...
