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 kinetic modeling study of the pyrolysis and oxidation of n-C-3-C-5 aldehydes in shock tubes
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2015-08-24)
Due to the increasing interest in the use of biofuels for energy production, it is of great importance to better understand the combustion and thermal decomposition characteristics of species such as aldehydes. These are ...
An experimental and modeling study of diethyl carbonate oxidation
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2015-01-19)
Diethyl carbonate (DEC) is an attractive biofuel that can be used to displace petroleum-derived diesel fuel, thereby reducing CO2 and particulate emissions from diesel engines. A better understanding of DEC combustion ...
Experimental and kinetic modeling study of 2-methyl-2-butene: allylic hydrocarbon kinetics
(American Chemical Society, 2015-03-20)
Two experimental studies have been carried out on the oxidation of 2-methyl-2-butene, one measuring ignition delay times behind reflected shock waves in a stainless steel shock tube, and the other measuring fuel, intermediate, ...
Comparison of the performance of several recent syngas combustion mechanisms
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2015-01-22)
A large set of experimental data was accumulated for syngas combustion: ignition studies in shock tubes (732 data points in 62 datasets) and in rapid compression machines (492/47), flame velocity determinations (2116/217) ...
