C3H8_22_173_12_FC ARC mechanism


  • Type of mechanism     :  ARC
  • Fuels used                     :  Propane
  • Oxidizer used                 : Air
  • Number of species      :  22 + 12 QSS
  • Number of reactions    :  173
  • Cases of application    :  0D, 1D


This mechanism has been derived by Felix Collin-Bastiani at CERFACS.

It is derived from a 34 species skeletal mechanism itself derived from the Jerzembeck’s mechanism using YARC.

It comprises 22 transported species, 12 QSS species and 173 reactions.
