C3H8_23_256_14_QM ARC mechanism


  • Type of mechanism     :  ARC
  • Fuels used                     :  Propane
  • Oxidizer used                 : Air
  • Number of species      :  23 + 14 QSS
  • Number of reactions    :  256
  • Cases of application    :  0D, 1D


This mechanism has been derived by Quentin Malé at CERFACS.
It is derived from a skeletal itself derived from the San Diego mechanism using ARCANE, done for a large span of pressure and temperature to ensure auto-ignition timing and laminar flame speed.
It comprises 23 transported species, 14 QSS species and 256 irreversible reactions
