To calculate soot source terms a new soot model is applied to study the formation and oxidation of soot particles in turbulent flames. The KIVA-3V code that is widely used in diesel combustion studies is modified and employed for the simulations. The model is based on a detailed description of the chemical and physical processes leading to the formation of soot. It can be subdivided into the growth of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the gas phase reactions and the processes of particle inception, c…
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 on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
