Abstract: AbstractThis work presents results from detailed chemical kinetics calculations of electronically excited OH (A 2 Ȉ, denoted as OH*) and CH (A 2 ǻ, denoted as CH*) chemiluminescent species in laminar premixed and non-premixed counterflow methane-air flames, at atmospheric pressure. Eight different detailed chemistry mechanisms, with added elementary reactions that account for the formation and destruction of the chemiluminescent species OH* and CH*, are studied. The effects of flow strain rate and equivalence…
