a b s t r a c tEndothermic catalytic cracking of hydrocarbon fuels is one of the most effective methods for thermal management in high-speed jet engines. Despite extensive research, improved understanding of fundamental reaction mechanisms and chemical events associated with hydrocarbon cracking reactions remains desirable. In this investigation, we used the ReaxFF force field to investigate the initial reaction pathways involved in hydrocarbon cracking over amorphous silica, hydrated amorphous silica, and am…
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 of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
