Along with other nitrogen oxides, nitric oxide (NO) is a regulated air pollutant that is primarily produced as a result of combustion processes. This pollutant is produced in every combustion system that uses oxidizer mixtures containing N2 and/or fuels that contain organically bound nitrogen. To design combustors to minimize NO emissions, high-fidelity computational models for NO production and NO/NO2 interconversion are required. To improve model performance and understanding of NO production pathways, a computational parametric study is performed to investigate the effects of fuel chemistry, reaction temperature history, and inert gas dilution on NO production in methane and ethylene combustion. Predictions using popular models from the literature are compared for premixed laminar flame conditions as well as against previously reported stirred reactor measurements. Differences in the predictions and their relationships to the NOx submodel and hydrocarbon chemistry are investigated. We find that signifi...
