Abstract:Tier III was a computational modeling effort in which two kinetic mechanisms were used to link experimental observables to kinetic and system contributions. A model using a plug flow reactor with variable heat transfer along the length was constructed and analyzed using CanteraRTM. Modeling confirmed the strong dependence of formaldehyde and hydrogen peroxide in controlling the ignition process. Studies indicated that the necessary kinetic routes, pressure dependence, and key system parameters for these conditions are necessarily different than those controlling standard high temperature combustion.
