A chemical reaction model for alternative aviation fuel blends
Source : greencarcongress.com
A team from the University of Leeds and University of Sheffield in the UK is proposing a theoretical model for the oxidation of blends of kerosene, biofuels, and synthetic (FT) fuels, work, with the biofuel portion being represented by methyl tridecanoate (MTD), a methyl ester with chemical formula C14H28O2 and the synthetic fraction being represented by heptane. The model is based on previous work performed by the authors on the development of a reaction mechanism including kerosene and methyl butanoate (MB), the Aviation Fuel Reaction Mechanism version 2.0 (AFRM v2.0). They updated AFRM v2.0 through a multi-parameter optimization, including the addition of the reactions for the breakdown of the C-14 methyl ester and a set of reactions for the oxidation of heptane.
