Experimental and kinetic modeling study of the shock tube ignition of a large oxygenated fuel: tri-propylene glycol mono-methyl ether
Tri-propylene glycol monomethyl ether (TPGME) is an important oxygenated fuel additive that can be used to reduce soot in diesel engines. However, a validated chemical kinetic model that incorporates the low- to high-temperature ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
