DLR OH* and CH* sub-mechanism


  • Type of mechanism     :  Submechanism
  • Fuels used                     :  Any
  • Oxidizer used                 : Any
  • Number of species      :  18
  • Number of reactions    :  28
  • Cases of application    :  0D, 1D


Developed by the DLR.

This sub-mechanism is made to be added to a base mechanism in order to predict OH* and CH* fields. It was transcribed into a .cti file from the data available in the appendix of Kathrotia’s PhD available below. Fell free to inform us of any mistake.

It comprises 21 species and 40 reactions.
