C3H8_21_153_11_QM ARC mechanism


  • Type of mechanism     :  ARC
  • Fuels used                     :  Propane
  • Oxidizer used                 : Air
  • Number of species      :  21 + 11 QSS
  • Number of reactions    :  153
  • Cases of application    :  0D, 1D


This mechanism has been derived by Quentin Malé at CERFACS.

It is derived from a skeletal mechanism itself derived from the San Diego mechanism using YARC, done for a large span of pressure and temperature to ensure auto-ignition timing and laminar flame speed.

It comprises 21 transported species, 11 QSS species and 153 reactions.
