JETA_39_434_15_QC (Cazères39) ARC mechanism


  • Type of mechanism     :   ARC
  • Fuels used                   :   Jet A1: 60% n-dodecane, 20% methycyclohexane, 20% xylene (Humer et al. surrogate)
  • Oxidizer used              :    Air
  • Number of species      :    39 + 15 QSS
  • Number of reactions    :   434
  • Cases of application    :   1D premixed flame



This mechanism has been derived by Quentin Cazères at CERFACS.

The ARC mechanism comprises 39 transported species, 15 QSS species, and 434 irreversible reactions.

This mechanism has been derived from the CRECK_2003_TOT_HT detailed mechanism for the combustion of a 3-components Jet A1 surrogate.
