NC12H26_27_260_15_JW ARC mechanism


  • Type of mechanism     :  ARC
  • Fuels used                     :  NC12H26
  • Oxidizer used                 : Air
  • Number of species      :  27 + 15 QSS
  • Number of reactions    :  260
  • Cases of application    :  0D, 1D


This mechanism has been derived by Jonathan Wirtz at CERFACS for kerosene combustion.

It is derived from a 42 species skeletal mechanism itself derived from the POLIMI_C1_C16_HT mechanism using ARCANE.

It comprises 27 transported species, 15 QSS species and 260 reactions.
