Kinetics modeling of shock-induced ignition in low-dilution CH4/O2 mixtures at high pressures and intermediate temperatures
Abstract An analytical study was conducted to supplement recent high-pressure shock tube measurements of CH 4 /O 2 ignition at elevated pressures (40–260 atm), low dilution levels (fuel plus oxidizerExpand

Jet fuel ignition delay times: Shock tube experiments over wide conditions and surrogate model predictions
Abstract Ignition delay times were measured for gas-phase jet fuel (Jet-A and JP-8) in air behind reflected shock waves in a heated high-pressure shock tube. Initial reflected shock conditions wereExpand
