The combustion of kerosene: Experimental results and kinetic modelling using 1- to 3-component surrogate model fuels

Abstract : The oxidation of kerosene Jet-A1 and that of n-decane have been studied experimentally in a jet-stirred reactor at atmospheric pressure and constant residence time, over the high temperature range 900–1300 K, and for variable equivalence ratio (0.5≤ϕ≤2). Concentration profiles of the reactants, stable intermediates, and final products have been obtained by probe sampling followed by on-line and off-line GC analyses. The oxidation of neat n-decane and of kerosene in these conditions was modeled using a detailed kinetic reaction mechanism (209 species and 1673 reactions, most of them reversible). The present model was successfully used to simulate the structure of a fuel-rich premixed n-decane–oxygen–nitrogen flame. In the modelling, kerosene was represented by four surrogate model fuels: 100% n-decane, n-decane-n-propylbenzene (74%/26% mol), n-decane-n-propylcyclohexane (74%/26% mol), and n-decane-n-propylbenzene-n-propylcyclohexane (74%/15%/11% mol). The 3-component model fuel was the most appropriate for simulating the JSR experiments. It was also successfully used to simulate the structure of a fuel-rich premixed kerosene–oxygen–nitrogen flame.
