Abstract

"An optimized kinetic model of H2/CO Combustion," Proceedings of the Combustion Institute, 30, pp. 1283-1292 (2005).

 

We propose a H2–CO kinetic model which incorporates the recent thermodynamic, kinetic, and species transport updates relevant to high-temperature H2 and CO oxidation. Attention has been placed on obtaining a comprehensive and kinetically accurate model able to predict a wide variety of H2–CO combustion data. The model was subject to systematic optimization and validation tests against reliable H2–CO combustion data, from global combustion properties (shock-tube ignition delays, laminar flame speeds, and extinction strain rates) to detailed species profiles during H2 and CO oxidation in flow reactor and in laminar premixed flames.
