Abstract: 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 low temperature range at elevated pressures is meager. In order to provide experimental data sets for mechanism validation at such conditions, the autoignition of homogeneous ethanol/oxidizer mixtures has been investigated in a rapid compression machine. Experiments cover a range of pressures…
