Lignocellulosic biomass is a promising alternative fuel source which can promote energy security, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and minimize fuel consumption when paired with advanced combustion strategies. Pyrolysis is used to convert lignocellulosic biomass into a complex mixture of phenolic-rich species that can be used in a transportation fuel. Anisole (or methoxybenzene) can be used as a surrogate to represent these phenolic-rich species. Anisole also has attractive properties as a fuel ...

Abstract This work presents an updated experimental and kinetic modeling study of n- heptane oxidation. In the experiments, ignition delay times of stoichiometric n- heptane/air mixtures have been measured in two different high-pressure shock tubes in the temperature range of 726–1412 K and at elevated pressures (15, 20 and 38 bar). Meanwhile, concentration versus time profiles of species have been measured in a jet-stirred reactor at atmospheric pressure, in the temperature range of 500–1100 K ...

Abstract Ignition delay times for n -hexane oxidation have been measured in a rapid compression machine (RCM) at stoichiometric conditions and at 15 bar. Due to the high reactivity of n -hexane and non-ideal experimental effects associated with measuring short ignition delay times in the RCM (i.e. under 5 ms), further experiments were performed in a high-pressure shock tube for multiple fuel mixtures at equivalence ratios of φ = 1 and φ = 2 over the temperature range of 627–1365 K at pressures o...

New Laminar Flame Speed measurements have been taken for a wide range of syngas mixtures containing hydrocarbon impurities. These experiments began with two baseline syngas mixtures. The first of these baseline mixtures was a bio-syngas with a 50/50 H2/CO split, and the second baseline mixture was a coal syngas with a 40/60 H2/CO split. Experiments were conducted over a range of equivalence ratios from ϕ = 0.5 to 3 at initial conditions of 1 atm and 300 K. Upon completion of the baseline experim...

Abstract Atmospheric-pressure highly-diluted laminar dimethyl ether (DME)–oxygen flames with temperatures below 1500 K were stabilized for the first time on a specially designed burner which allows preheating of the gas streams of fuel and oxidizer. With regard to the partially premixed structure of these flames which contain up to 90% argon in the unburnt gases, molecular-beam mass spectrometry (MBMS) with electron ionization (EI) was used to investigate chemical species profiles of reactants, ...

Abstract Experimental measurements were conducted for temperatures and mole fractions of C1–C16 combustion intermediates in laminar coflow non-premixed methane/air flames doped with 3.9% (in volume) 1-butanol, 2-butanol, iso -butanol and tert -butanol, respectively. Synchrotron vacuum ultraviolet photoionization mass spectrometry (SVUV-PIMS) technique was utilized in the measurements of species mole fractions. The results show that the variant molecular structures of butyl alcohols have led to d...

Abstract In the present paper, synchrotron VUV photoionization mass spectrometry is used to study the detailed chemistry of co-flow methane diffusion flames with different dilution ratios. The experimental results constitute a comprehensive characterization of species important for PAH and soot formation under conditions that resemble those of practical flames. In addition to the main C 1 /C 2 species, unsaturated C 3 (C 3 H 2 , C 3 H 3 , a C 3 H 4 , p C 3 H 4 ), C 4 (C 4 H 2 , C 4 H 4 , C 4 H 6...
