    • CO and H2O time-histories in shock-heated blends of methane and ethane for assessment of a chemical kinetics model 

      Mathieu, O.; Mulvihill, C. R.; Petersen, E. L.; Zhang, Y.; Curran, Henry J. (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) ...
    • A comprehensive iso-octane combustion model with improved thermochemistry and chemical kinetics 

      Atef, Nour; Kukkadapu, Goutham; Mohamed, Samah Y.; Al Rashidi, Mariam J.; Al Rashidi, Mariam; Banyon, Colin; Mehl, Marco; Heufer, Karl Alexander; Nasir, Ehson F.; Alfazazi, A.; Das, Apurba K.; Westbrook, Charles K.; Pitz, William J.; Lu, Tianfeng; Farooq, Aamir; Sung, Chih-Jen; Curran, Henry J.; Sarathy, S. Mani (Elsevier, 2017-02-05)
      Iso-Octane (2,2,4-trimethylpentane) is a primary reference fuel and an important component of gasoline fuels. Moreover, it is a key component used in surrogates to study the ignition and burning characteristics of gasoline ...
    • Developing detailed chemical kinetic mechanisms for fuel combustion 

      Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2018-07-01)
      This paper discusses a brief history of chemical kinetic modeling, with some emphasis on the development of chemical kinetic mechanisms describing fuel oxidation. At high temperatures, the important reactions tend to be ...
