A comprehensive combustion chemistry study of 2,5-dimethylhexane
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2014-01-16)
Iso-paraffinic molecular structures larger than seven carbon atoms in chain length are commonly found in conventional petroleum, Fischer-Tropsch (FT), and other alternative hydrocarbon fuels, but little research has been ...
An experimental and modeling study of surrogate mixtures of n-propyl- and n-butylbenzene in n-heptane to simulate n-decylbenzene ignition
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2014-01-11)
This paper presents experimental data for the oxidation of two surrogates for the large alkylbenzene class of compounds contained in diesel fuels, namely n-decylbenzene. A 57:43 molar% mixture of n-propylbenzene:n-heptane ...
An experimental and modeling study of propene oxidation. Part 2: Ignition delay time and flame speed measurements
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2014-09-11)
Experimental data obtained in this study (Part II) complement the speciation data presented in Part I, but also offer a basis for extensive facility cross-comparisons for both experimental ignition delay time (IDT) and ...
An ignition delay and kinetic modeling study of methane, dimethyl ether, and their mixtures at high pressures
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2014-09-29)
The development of accurate chemical kinetic models capable of predicting the combustion of methane and dimethyl ether in common combustion environments such as compression ignition engines and gas turbines is important ...
Theoretical chemical kinetic study of the h-atom abstraction reactions from aldehydes and acids by Ḣ Atoms and ȮH, HȮ2, and ĊH3 radicals
(American Chemical Society, 2014-11-11)
We have performed a systematic, theoretical chemical kinetic investigation of H atom abstraction by H atoms and OH, HO2, and CH3 radicals from aldehydes (methanal, ethanal, propanal, and isobutanal) and acids (methanoic ...
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 ...
