C4H10H2O_24_505_12_QC (Cazères24) ARC mechanism


  • Type of mechanism     :   ARC
  • Number of species      :    24 + 12 QSS
  • Number of reactions    :   505
  • Cases of application    :   Butane steam cracking process



This mechanism has been derived by Quentin Cazères at CERFACS.

The ARC mechanism comprises 24 transported species, 12 QSS species, and 505 reactions.

This mechanism has been derived from the CRECK_2003_TOT_HT detailed mechanism for butane steam cracking applications.
