Abstract: a b s t r a c tA detailed mechanism for methane-ethylene mixtures enriched with excessive amount of NO was systematically reduced for efficient numerical simulations of flames in arc-heated co-flowing air. Methane and ethylene were selected as the surrogate fuel in the present study due to their drastically different features of ignition and extinction properties and flame propagation speeds, such that the mixtures of them may be utilized to mimic practical hydrocarbon fuels with various kinetic properties in…
