  • Autoignition of ethanol in a rapid compression machine 

    Mittal, Gaurav; Burke, Sinéad M.; Davies, Varun A.; Parajuli, Bikash; Metcalfe, Wayne K.; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2013-12-09)
    Ethanol is a renewable source of energy and significant attention has been directed to the development of a validated chemical kinetic mechanism for this fuel. The experimental data for the autoignition of ethanol in the ...
  • 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 modeling study of nitromethane + O2 + N2 ignition in a shock tube 

    Nauclér, J.D.; Li, Y.; Nilsson, E.J.K.; Curran, Henry J.; Konnov, A.A. (Elsevier, 2016-09-09)
    The ignition of nitromethane/O-2/N-2 mixtures was investigated via shock tube experiments in the temperature range 947-1333 K at reflected shock pressures near 8, 16 and 32 atm. The ignition was recorded as the intensity ...
  • An experimental and modeling study of propene oxidation. Part 2: Ignition delay time and flame speed measurements 

    Burke, Sinéad M.; Burke, Ultan; Mc Donagh, Reuben; Mathieu, Olivier; Osorio, Irmis; Keesee, Charles; Morones, Anibal; Petersen, Eric L.; Wang, Weijing; DeVerter, Trent A.; Oehlschlaeger, Matthew A.; Rhodes, Brandie; Hanson, Ronald K.; Davidson, David F.; Weber, Bryan W.; Sung, Chih-Jen; Santner, Jeffrey; Ju, Yiguang; Haas, Francis M.; Dryer, Frederick L.; Volkov, Evgeniy N.; Nilsson, Elna J. K.; Konnov, Alexander A.; Alrefae, Majed; Khaled, Fethi; Farooq, Aamir; Dirrenberger, Patricia; Glaude, Pierre-Alexandre; Battin-Leclerc, Frédérique; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2014-09-11)
    Experimental data obtained in this study (Part II) complement the speciation data presented in Part I, but also offer a basis for extensive facility cross-comparisons for both experimental ignition delay time (IDT) and ...
  • An experimental and modeling study of surrogate mixtures of n-propyl- and n-butylbenzene in n-heptane to simulate n-decylbenzene ignition 

    Darcy, D,Nakamura, H,Tobin, CJ,Mehl, M,Metcalfe, WK,Pitz, WJ,Westbrook, CK,Curran, HJ; Darcy, Daniel; Nakamura, Hisashi; Tobin, Colin J.; Mehl, Marco; Metcalfe, Wayne K.; Pitz, William J.; Westbrook, Charles K.; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2014-01-11)
    This paper presents experimental data for the oxidation of two surrogates for the large alkylbenzene class of compounds contained in diesel fuels, namely n-decylbenzene. A 57:43 molar% mixture of n-propylbenzene:n-heptane ...
  • A high-pressure rapid compression machine study of n-propylbenzene ignition 

    Darcy, Daniel; Tobin, Colin; Metcalfe, Wayne; Pitz, William J.; Nakamura, Hisashi; Westbrook, Charles K.; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2013-08-28)
    This study presents new ignition delay data measured in a rapid compression machine over a wide range temperature, pressure and fuel/air ratio. This data is an extension of that measured previously (D. Darcy, C.J. Tobin, ...
  • Oxidation of ethylene-air mixtures at elevated pressures, part 2: chemical kinetics 

    Kopp, Madeleine M.; Donato, Nicole S.; Petersen, Eric L.; Metcalfe, Wayne K.; Burke, Sinéad M.; Curran, Henry J. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2014-03-27)
    A chemical kinetics submechanism for small molecular weight hydrocarbons was modified by adjusting rate constants to produce better agreement with recent ethylene ignition delay time data compared with an earlier version ...
  • Revisiting the kinetics and thermodynamics of the low-temperature oxidation pathways of alkanes: a case study of the three pentane isomers 

    Bugler, John; Somers, Kieran P.; Silke, Emma J.; Curran, Henry J. (American Chemical Society, 2015-03-23)
    This paper describes our developing understanding of low-temperature oxidation kinetics. We have investigated the ignition of the three pentane isomers in a rapid compression machine over a wide range of temperatures and ...
  • Using rapid compression machines for chemical kinetics studies 

    Sung, Chih-Jen; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2014-04-26)
    Rapid compression machines (RCMs) are used to simulate a single compression stroke of an internal combustion engine without some of the complicated swirl bowl geometry, cycle-to-cycle variation, residual gas, and other ...
