CANTERA Reduced Chemical Mechanism for Dimethyl Ether Combustion

  • Vlad Aparece-Scutariu (Creator)



The file contains a reduce chemical mechanism for Dimethyl ether-air combustion. It is a reduced mechanism containing 31 species and 82 reactions, converted from the CHEMKIN input file of Pan et al. [1]. The mechanism is derived from the detailed Dymethyl ether-air chemistry of Burke et al. [2].
