Konnov (v0.6) detailed mechanism


  • Type of mechanism     :  Detailed
  • Fuels used                     :  CH4
  • Oxidizer used                 : Air
  • Number of species      :  201
  • Number of reactions    :  2300
  • Cases of application    :  0D, 1D


The description is the same than what is in Konnov’s mechanism webpage.
– The reaction

          OHX=OH+hv                      1.400E+06      0.0         0.0 ! 15KON3753
  of the .inp file has been modified so that the .cti conversion works :
          OHX=OH                            1.400E+06      0.0         0.0 ! 15KON3753 
– The value of the reaction rate at P=100 atm of :
          # Reaction 820
          pdep_arrhenius(‘C2H3O2 <=> CO2 + CH3’)
has been commented (in the .cti file) because the value of the reaction rate at 500K was not valid.
