    • A detailed chemical kinetic modeling, ignition delay time and jet-stirred reactor study of methanol oxidation 

      Burke, Ultan; Metcalfe, Wayne K.; Burke, Sinead M.; Heufer, K. Alexander; Dagaut, Philippe; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2016-01-29)
      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 ...
    • Experimental and kinetic modeling study of 2-methyl-2-butene: allylic hydrocarbon kinetics 

      Westbrook, Charles K.; Pitz, William J.; Mehl, Marco; Glaude, Pierre-Alexandre; Herbinet, Olivier; Bax, Sarah; Battin-Leclerc, Frederique; Mathieu, Olivier; Petersen, Eric L.; Bugler, John; Curran, Henry J. (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, ...
    • An experimental and kinetic modeling study of the pyrolysis and oxidation of n-C-3-C-5 aldehydes in shock tubes 

      Pellucci, Matteo; Somers, Kieran P.; Yasunaga, Kenji; Burke, Ultan; Alessio, Frassoldati; Ranzi, Eliseo; Curran, Henry J.; Faravelli, Tiziano (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 

      Nakamura, Hisashi; Curran, Henry J.; Córdoba, Angel Polo; Pitz, William J.; Dagaut, Philippe; Togbé, Casimir; Sarathy, S. Mani; Mehl, Marco; Agudelo, John R.; Bustamante, Felipe (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 ...
    • An experimental and modeling study of propene oxidation. Part 1: Speciation measurements in jet-stirred and flow reactors 

      Burke, Sinéad M.; Metcalfe, Wayne; Herbinet, Olivier; Battin-Leclerc, Frédérique; Haas, Francis M.; Santner, Jeffrey; Dryer, Frederick L.; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2014-06-20)
      Propene is a significant component of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and an intermediate in the combustion of higher order hydrocarbons. To better understand the combustion characteristics of propene, this study and its ...
