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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
