CH4_16_250_10_QC (Cazères16) ARC mechanism


  • Type of mechanism     :   ARC
  • Fuels used                   :   CH4
  • Oxidizer used              :    Air
  • Number of species      :    16 + 10 QSS
  • Number of reactions    :   250
  • Cases of application    :   1D premixed flame



This mechanism has been derived by Quentin Cazères at CERFACS.

The ARC mechanism comprises 16 transported species, 10 QSS species, and
250 reactions.

This mechanism has been derived from the GRI-Mech 3.0 for methane/air combustion.
