    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 ...
  • 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 chemical kinetic modeling study of 1,3-butadiene combustion: Ignition delay time and laminar flame speed measurements 

    Zhou, Chong-Wen; Li, Yang; Burke, Ultan; Banyon, Colin; Somers, Kieran P.; Ding, Shuiting; Khan, Saadat; Hargis, Joshua W.; Sikes, Travis; Mathieu, Olivier; Petersen, Eric L.; AlAbbad, Mohammed; Farooq, Aamir; Pan, Youshun; Zhang, Yingjia; Huang, Zuohua; Lopez, Joseph; Loparo, Zachary; Vasu, Subith S.; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2018-09-10)
    Ignition delay times for 1,3-butadiene oxidation were measured in five different shock tubes and in a rapid compression machine (RCM) at thermodynamic conditions relevant to practical combustors. The ignition delay times ...
  • 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 ...
