Abstract: An effective adaptive mechanism reduction approach based on flux graph clustering is proposed in this paper. The instantaneous element flux is quantified and considered as a proxy for describing the reactive propensities of the system. Our underlying hypothesis is that even though particular conditions may be characterized by a multitude of combinations of species mass fraction, T , and P , the essential chemistry, and hence the reaction propensity of the mixture that is active under this family of conditions…
