Abstract: The oxidation of methane/ethane/propane mixtures, for blends containing 90/6.6/3.3, 70/15/15 and 70/20/10 percent by volume of each fuel respectively in 'air,' has been studied over the temperature range 770-1580 K, at compressed gas pressures of approximately 1, 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 atm, and at equivalence ratios of 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 using both a high-pressure shock tube and a rapid compression machine. The present work represents the most comprehensive set of methane/ethane/propane ignition delay time measu…
