Abstract

We utilize the local self-similarity tabulation method to drastically downsize the number of species involved in a detailed kinetic mechanism of iso-cetane. Reduced-species mechanisms of 20 and 15 species are constructed, out of the 1114 species involved in the detailed mechanism, with a focus on high-pressure combustion. The performance of the two reduced mechanisms are compared to the detailed one for a lean (ϕ = 0.5), stoichiometric (ϕ = 1.0), and rich (ϕ = 1.5) iso-cetane/air mixture at initial temperatures of 900 and 1100 K and constant pressures of 20 and 40 bar. Good to very good agreement between the detailed kinetic mechanism and the two highly reduced species mechanisms are demonstrated.
