Abstract: The influence of physical parameters and of flow patterns on the prediction of n-heptane ignition dynamic in transient reacting n-heptane jets, in high pressure environment under laminar conditions, has been explored by using different kinetic mechanisms. Some preliminary transient laminar flamelet computations have been performed, thus showing that the sensitivity of the ignition time to strain rate depends on the kinetic mechanism used.\ud \ud Therefore, the structure of the reacting jet, in particular the l…
