CO and H2O time-histories in shock-heated blends of methane and ethane for assessment of a chemical kinetics model
(ASME The American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2017-09-13)
Methane and ethane are the two main components of natural gas and typically constitute more than 95% of it. In this study, a mixture of 90% CH4/10% C2H6 diluted in 99% Ar was studied at fuel lean (equiv. ratio = 0.5) ...
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 ...
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 ...
Extended wavelength anisotropy resolved multidimensional emission spectroscopy (ARMES) measurements: better filters, validation standards, and Rayleigh scatter removal methods
(IOP Publishing, 2017-08-17)
Anisotropy resolved multidimensional emission spectroscopy (ARMES) provides valuable insights into multi-fluorophore proteins (Groza et al 2015 Anal. Chim. Acta 886 133-42). Fluorescence anisotropy adds to the multidimensional ...
Advances in rapid compression machine studies of low- and intermediate-temperature autoignition phenomena
Rapid compression machines (RCMs) are widely used to acquire experimental insights into fuel autoignition and pollutant formation chemistry, especially at conditions relevant to current and future combustion technologies. ...

A kinetic modelling study of alcohols operating regimes in a HCCI engine
(SAE International, 2017-09-04)
Pursuing a sustainable energy scenario for transportation requires the blending of renewable oxygenated fuels such as alcohols into commercial hydrocarbon fuels. From a chemical kinetic perspective, this requires the ...
Electro-mechanical response of a 3D nerve bundle model to mechanical loads leading to axonal injury
Traumatic brain injuries and damage are major causes of death and disability. We propose a 3D fully coupled electro-mechanical model of a nerve bundle to investigate the electrophysiological impairments due to trauma at ...
An experimental and modeling study of the ignition of dimethyl carbonate in shock tubes and rapid compression machine
Ignition delay times of dimethyl carbonate DMC were measured using low- and high-pressure shock tubes and in a rapid compression machine (RCM). In this way, the effect of fuel concentration (0.75% and 1.75%), pressure (2.0, ...
Tectonic structure and permeability in the Taupô Rift: new insights from analysis of LiDAR derived dems
(New Zealand Geothermal Workshop, 2017-11-22)
The location of permeable zones, and preliminary quantification of a geothermal well’s production or injection capacity are routinely interpreted from well pressure, temperature, and flow measurements made at ...
