Hydrogen/air combustion

Here are the mechanisms which will be detailed in the following section :

They are sorted in decending order of complexity.

UCSD mechanism

This detailed mechanism of hydrogen combustion in air has been developed by the San Diego University and involves 57 species in 268 reactions. More info on this web site (CHEMKIN format, FlameMaster format, etc.).

A reduced version of the mechanism, consisting of only 9 species and 21 reactions is also available.

Boivin's mechanism

The mechanism is a 12-steps model including 9 species. The .cti file is available here.

More information can be found in Boivin's thesis.
