CH4_oO2_10_82_7_CL ARC mechanism


  • Type of mechanism     :  ARC
  • Fuels used                     :  Methane
  • Oxidizer used                 : Oxygen
  • Number of species      :  10 + 7 QSS
  • Number of reactions    :  82
  • Cases of application    :  0D, 1D


This mechanism has been derived by Charlélie Laurent at CERFACS for methane oxi-combustion.

It is derived from a 17 species skeletal mechanism itself derived from the GRI3.0 mechanism using YARC.

It comprises 10 transported species, 7 QSS species and 82 reactions.
