Abstract: a b s t r a c tComputational studies of combustion in engines are typically performed by modeling the real fuel as a surrogate mixture of various hydrocarbons. Aromatic species are crucial components in these surrogate mixtures. In this work, a consistent chemical mechanism to predict the high temperature combustion characteristics of toluene, styrene, ethylbenzene, 1,3-dimethylbenzene (m-xylene), and 1-methylnaphthalene is presented. The present work builds on a detailed chemical mechanism for high temperatu…
