An experimental and kinetic modeling study of n-hexane oxidation
Ignition delay times for n-hexane oxidation have been measured in a rapid compression machine (RCM) at stoichiometric conditions and at 15 bar. Due to the high reactivity of n-hexane and non-ideal experimental effects ...
Ignition delay times, laminar flame speeds, and mechanism validation for natural gas/hydrogen blends at elevated pressures
New experimental ignition delay time data measured in both a shock tube and in a rapid compression machine were taken to determine the increase in reactivity due to the addition of hydrogen to mixtures of methane and natural ...
Autoignition of ethanol in a rapid compression machine
Ethanol is a renewable source of energy and significant attention has been directed to the development of a validated chemical kinetic mechanism for this fuel. The experimental data for the autoignition of ethanol in the ...
An experimental and modeling study of shock tube and rapid compression machine ignition of n-butylbenzene/air mixtures
In our previous work (D. Darcy, C.J. Tobin, K. Yasunaga, J.M. Simmie, J. Wurmel, W.K. Metcalfe, T. Niass, S.S. Ahmed, C.K. Westbrook, H.J. Curran, Combust. Flame 159 (2012) 2219-2232), ignition delay times of n-butylbenzene ...
Using rapid compression machines for chemical kinetics studies
Rapid compression machines (RCMs) are used to simulate a single compression stroke of an internal combustion engine without some of the complicated swirl bowl geometry, cycle-to-cycle variation, residual gas, and other ...
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 ...
