CH4_24_148_0_AP skeletal mechanism


  • Type of mechanism     :  Skeletal
  • Fuels used                     :  Methane, H2
  • Oxidizer used                 : Air
  • Number of species      :  24
  • Number of reactions    :  148
  • 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. 
This mechanism can be used for the 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 skeletal mechanism comprises 24 transported species and 148 reactions
