Dagaut detailed mechanism


  • Type of mechanism     :  Detailed
  • Fuels used                     :  Kerosene
  • Oxidizer used                 : Air
  • Number of species      :  225 (or 209 at HighP)
  • Number of reactions    :  1800 (or 1673 at HighP)
  • Cases of application    :  0D, 1D


This mechanism has been developed by Philippe Dagaut at Laboratoire de Combustion et Systèmes Réactifs for kerosene surrogate combustion.

The surrogate is made up of 74% of NC10H22, 15% of PHC3H7 and 11% of CYC9H18.

This detailed mechanism comprises 225 species and 1800 reactions.

Another mechanism was also derived for validity at high pressure with 209 species and 1673 reactions.
