H2_iNA_10_22_0_OD skeletal mechanism


  • Type of mechanism     :  Skeletal
  • Fuels used                     :  Hydrogen
  • Oxidizer used                 : Air
  • Number of species      :  10
  • Number of reactions    :  22
  • Cases of application    :  0D, 1D


This mechanism has been derived by Omar Dounia at CERFACS.
It is derived from the detailed UCSD scheme + 2 Na-inhibition reactions using personal flame speed sensitivity tool.
It is a skeletal mechanism.
This mechanism can be used for the H2 combustion in air at atmospheric conditions in presence of NaOH gaseous inhibitor.
Validity has been evaluated for 1D premixed flames on the following range :
P = 1atm, T = 300 K, phi = 0.4 – 4. and Y_NaOH ranging from 0 until extinction is reached.
