This mechanism was created by the CRECK modeling group.


See the CRECK website.


NB : POLIMI mechanism are often modified. Please check this website to look for the original chemkin files and convert them with ck2cti.

HT = High Temperature
LT = Lower Temperature
NOX = with sub-module for nitrogen-oxides
SOOT = sub-module for soot particles (based on the Discrete Sectional model)
