  • A comprehensive combustion chemistry study of 2,5-dimethylhexane 

    Sarathy, S. Mani; Javed, Tamour; Karsenty, Florent; Heufer, Alexander; Wang, Weijing; Park, Sungwoo; Elwardany, Ahmed; Farooq, Aamir; Westbrook, Charles K.; Pitz, William J.; Oehlschlaeger, Matthew A.; Dayma, Guillaume; Curran, Henry J.; Dagaut, Philippe (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 ...
  • Cyclopentane combustion. Part II. Ignition delay measurements and mechanism validation 

    Al Rashidi, Mariam J.; Mármol, Juan C.; Banyon, Colin; Sajid, Muhammad B.; Mehl, Marco; Pitz, William J.; Mohamed, Samah; Alfazazi, Adamu; Lu, Tianfeng; Curran, Henry J.; Farooq, Aamir; Sarathy, S. Mani (Elsevier, 2017-06-12)
    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 experimental and kinetic modeling study of n-hexane oxidation 

    Zhang, Kuiwen; Banyon, Colin; Togbé, Casimir; Dagaut, Philippe; Bugler, John; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2015-09-11)
    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 ...
  • Ignition characteristics of 2-methyltetrahydrofuran: An experimental and kinetic study 

    Tripathi, Rupali; Lee, Changyoul; Fernandes, Ravi X.; Olivier, Herbert; Curran, Henry J.; Sarathy, S. Mani; Pitsch, Heinz (Elsevier, 2016-10-10)
    The present paper elucidates oxidation behavior of 2-methyltetrahydrofuran (2-MTHF), a novel second-generation biofuel. New experimental data sets for 2-MTHF including ignition delay time measurements in two different ...
  • An RCM experimental and modeling study on CH4 and CH4/C2H6 oxidation at pressures up to 160 bar 

    Ramalingam, Ajoy; Zhang, Kuiwen; Dhongde, Avnish; Virnich, Lukas; Sankhla, Harsh; Curran, Henry J.; Heufer, Alexander (Elsevier, 2017-06-13)
    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) ...
