报告题目：Measurement of Laminar Flame Speed and Development of Reduced Mechanisms for n-Dodecane
Abstract: n-Dodecane is a good surrogate for diesel and jet fuel. However, detailed kinetic mechanisms of n-dodecane are still too large to apply into 3-D simulation of engines. In the present work, using spherical bomb experiment system, laminar flame speed of n-dodecane was measured under the conditions of p=1atm, initial temperature T=400K, 460K, stoichiometric ratio φ=0.7-1.4. According to skeletal mechanism construction and optimization method based on the reaction path analysis and sensitivity analysis of large mechanisms, a skeletal mechanism of n-dodecane (54 species and 269 reactions) were obtained. Then, based on the time scale analysis reduction method, reduced mechanism of n-dodecane (35 species and 31 reaction steps) was developed, the mechanism was validated against the skeletal one for a wide range of conditions. Finally, the reduced n-dodecane mechanism was applied to the three-dimensional numerical simulation of a supersonic combustor, the results showed that the reduced mechanism could well predict the wall pressure distribution along the combustor, which provided useful guidance for further optimization of multidimensional supersonic combustion numerical simulation.
