Abstract:
To execute the computational fluid dynamics coupling with fuel chemistry in internal combustion engines, simplified chemical kinetic models which capture the low-temperature oxidation kinetics would be required. A steady-state analysis was applied to see the complicated reaction mechanism of alkylperoxy radicals by assuming the steady state for hydroperoxyalkyl (QOOH) and hydroperoxyalkylperoxy (OOQOOH) radicals. This analysis clearly shows the systematic trend of the reaction rate for the chain-branching and non-branching process of alkylperoxy (ROO) radicals as a function of the chain length and the carbon class. These trends make it possible to classify alkylperoxy radicals by their chemical structures, and suggest a reduced low-temperature oxidation chemistry.
