Jerzembeck detailed mechanism


  • Type of mechanism     :  Detailed
  • Fuels used                     :  n-heptane, iso-octane
  • Oxidizer used                 : Air
  • Number of species      :  203 (99 in HighT)
  • Number of reactions    :  1001 (601 in HighT)
  • Cases of application    :  0D, 1D


This mechanism was created by Sven Jerzembeck at RWTH Aachen University.

This detailed mechanism comprises 203 species and 1001 reactions.

A smaller high temperature mechanism that should suffice for 1D laminar flame simulations is also available with 99 species and 601 reactions.
