Experimental and modeling study of ultra-rich oxidation of n-heptane

Abstract : Ultra rich fuel oxidation of normal heptane, relevant to diesel engine auto-ignition, has been experimentally and numerically investigated in a jet-stirred reactor (JSR) under a wide range of conditions. These cover the low, the intermediate, and the high temperature oxidation regimes, from 550 to 1100 K, under a pressure of 1.06 bar, an equivalence ratio of 3, inlet fuel mole fractions of 0.001, and 0.005, for respective residence times of 1 and 2 s. Up to 24 intermediates and final products have been identified and quantified by gas chromatography and mass spectrometry techniques. A detailed kinetic mechanism of n-heptane has been developed using computer-aided generation (EXGAS), including a C-0-C-6 reaction base. The predictions of the model were in satisfactory agreement with the obtained results in JSR for most species except benzene, for which some low-temperature reaction channels are probably missing in the mechanism, and with high pressure shock tube autoignition data from literature.
