On the kinetics of hydrocarbons oxidation from natural gas to kerosene and diesel fuel

Author affiliations

Abstract

Kinetic reaction mechanisms are necessary for modeling the combustion, oxidation and ignition of commercial fuels consisting of complex mixtures of hydrocarbons. Since they are generally too complex to be considered in the models directly, simple model-fuels are preferred. These model-fuels consist in a simple mixture of hydrocarbons for which kinetic oxidation models are validated. The oxidation of a large variety of hydrocarbons was studied experimentally in a jet-stirred reactor to build the needed kinetic reaction mechanisms. These detailed kinetic reaction mechanisms were assembled to model the oxidation of commercial fuels. The capabilities of these kinetic models to simulate the oxidation of natural gas, kerosene and gas oil are presented together with needs for new kinetic measurements.
