- Type of mechanism : ARC
- Fuels used : Methane, H2
- Oxidizer used : Oxygen
- Number of species : 15 + 9 QSS
- Number of reactions : 256
- Cases of application : 0D, 1D
This mechanism has been derived by Antoine Pestre at CERFACS.
It is derived from the detailed Polimi scheme C1C3_NOx_180501 using ARCANE. Skeletal mechanism associated can be found here.
This mechanism can be used for CH4 and CH4/H2 combustion in air at atmospheric conditions. High temperature auto-ignition mechanisms are also included.
Validity have been evaluated for 1D premixed flames on the following range : P = 0.3 bar – 5 bar, T = 233K – 650K, phi = 0.5 – 1.6
Validity have been evaluated for 0D auto-ignition reactors on the following range : P = 0.3 bar – 1 bar, T = 2000K – 3000K, phi =1
Validity have been evaluated for 1D flamelets the following range : P = 1 bar, T = 300K, chist = 1e-3 s^-1 – 25 s^-1
The ARC mechanism comprises 15 transported species, 9 QSS species, and 256 irreversible reactions.
