According to the study of the soot emission in marine diesel, ,a new reduced mechanism for n-heptane was constructed to describe the combustion process in diesel engine by using sensitivity analysis.Furthermore,verifying the ignition delay time,the laminar flame speed,the flame propagation distance and species profiles in combustion process by using Chemkin Pro in different pressure(13.5atm and 42 atm),initial temperatures and equivalence ratio(0.5 and 1.0).Then,compare the simulated result with the experiment data and the simulated result by using LLNL(lawrence livermore national laboratory)detail mechanism and SKLE(state key laboratory of engine)mechanism.It is demonstrated that the reduced mechanism can not describe the ignition delay time in low temperature.And then,the reduced mechanism was adjusted and optimized to make it more close to the experiment data,and the reduced mechanism were able to predict ignition delay time,laminar flame speed,flame propagation distance and species profiles.The final reduced n-heptane mechanism are more compact compare with the current detailed mechanisms in literature.Thus,this reduced n-heptane mechanism can reduce the pressure of calculation and save the calculation time. And this reduced mechanism will using in the improved nine-step soot model for predicting soot formation and oxidation process in diesel engines by using Converge.
