Abstract:Recently, an improved chemical mechanism of PAH growth was developed and tested in soot computations for a laminar co-flow non-premixed ethylene-air diffusion flame. In the present work, the chemical mechanism was enhanced further to accommodate the PAH gas phase growth in methane, ethylene and ethane co-flow flames. The changes in the mechanism were tested on a methane/oxygen and two ethane/oxygen premixed flames to ensure no degradation in its application to C 2 fuels. The major soot precursors were predicte…
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.
