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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
