- Type of mechanism : ARC
- Fuels used : heptane
- Oxidizer used : oxygen
- Number of species : 29 + 6 QSS
- Number of reactions : 94
- Cases of application : 0D, 1D counter flow diffusion
This mechanism can be used for various mix of C7H16/N2 combustion in pure oxygen at atmospheric conditions for auto-ignition time and counterflow diffusion flames.
Validity has been evaluated for 1D counterflow diffusion flames on the following range : P = 1 bar, T = 400 K, phi = 0.1 – 11, SR=1e0-1e5.
Validity has been evaluated for 0D auto-ignition reactors on the following range : P = 1 bar, T = 1000K, phi =1.
The ARC mechanism comprises 29 transported species, 6 QSS species and 94 reactions.
