This mechanism has been derived by Stefano Luca at the university of Texas.
It is a skeletal kinetic mechanism, derived from the GRI-mech 3.0, with 16 species and 72 reactions. The skeletal mechanism is validated for elevated unburnt temperatures (800 K) and pressures up to 4 atm, thereby addressing realistic gas turbine conditions.
