Abstract: a b s t r a c tThe feasibility of developing multipurpose reduced chemistry that is able to describe, with sufficient accuracy, premixed and non-premixed flames, one-dimensional detonations, high-temperature autoignition, and also low-temperature autoignition is explored. A four-step mechanism with O and OH in steady state is thoroughly tested and is shown to give satisfactory results under all conditions. The possibility of reducing this to a three-step mechanism, to decrease computation times without compro…
