Cyclopentane combustion. Part II. Ignition delay measurements and mechanism validation
This study reports cyclopentane ignition delay measurements over a wide range of conditions. The measurements were obtained using two shock tubes and a rapid compression machine, and were used to test a detailed low- and ...
An RCM experimental and modeling study on CH4 and CH4/C2H6 oxidation at pressures up to 160 bar
The oxidation of CH4 and CH4/C2H6 mixtures were studied at pressures relevant to knocking in large bore natural gas engines. The experiments were carried out in a rapid compression machine (RCM) at end of compression (EOC) ...
Assessing the predictions of a NOx kinetic mechanism on recent hydrogen and syngas experimental data
A detailed chemical kinetic mechanism has been developed to describe the pyrolysis and oxidation of the hydrogen/NOx and syngas/NOx systems. The thermodynamic data of nitrogenous compounds have been updated based on the ...
Probing the low-temperature chemistry of ethanol via the addition of dimethyl ether
Considering the importance of ethanol (EtOH) as an engine fuel and a key component of surrogate fuels, the further understanding of its auto-ignition and oxidation characteristics at engine-relevant conditions (high pressures ...
Uncertainty quantification of a newly optimized methanol and formaldehyde combustion mechanism
A detailed reaction mechanism for methanol combustion that is capable of describing ignition, flame propagation and species concentration profiles with high accuracy has been developed. Starting from a modified version of ...
