C3H8_21_170_12_QM ARC mechanism


  • Type of mechanism     :  ARC
  • Fuels used                     :  Propane
  • Oxidizer used                 : Air
  • Number of species      :  21 + 12 QSS
  • Number of reactions    :  170
  • 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, for a large span of phi at atmospheric pressure and temperature to ensure auto-ignition timing and laminar flame speed.

It comprises 21 transported species, 12 QSS species and 170 reactions.
