  • Autoignition characteristics of oxygenated gasolines 

    Lee, Changyoul; Ahmed, Ahfaz; Nasir, Ehson F.; Badra, Jihad; Kalghatgi, Gautam; Sarathy, S. Mani; Curran, Henry J.; Farooq, Aamir (Elsevier, 2017-08-14)
    Gasoline anti-knock quality, defined by the research and motor octane numbers (RON and MON), is important for increasing spark ignition (SI) engine efficiency. Gasoline knock resistance can be increased using a number of ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Modeling ignition of a heptane isomer: improved thermodynamics, reaction pathways, kinetics, and rate rule optimizations for 2-methylhexane 

    Mohamed, Samah Y.; Cai, Liming; Khaled, Fethi; Banyon, Colin; Wang, Zhandong; Al Rashidi, Mariam J.; Pitsch, Heinz; Curran, Henry J.; Farooq, Aamir; Sarathy, S. Mani (American Chemical Society, 2016-03-21)
    Accurate chemical kinetic combustion models of lightly branched alkanes (e.g., 2-methylalkanes) are important to investigate the combustion behavior of real fuels. Improving the fidelity of existing kinetic models is a ...
