Abstract : Validation and refinement of reaction mechanisms and development of new and improved reduced mechanisms describing the pyrolysis, oxidation and ignition of practical fuels requires a reliable database of experimental combustion targets. This database must cover relevant combustion conditions and encompass realistic practical fuels, fuel surrogate mixtures and individual surrogate components. Shock tubes and laser absorption diagnostics are able to provide three important types of experimental measurements for this database: ignition delay times, species concentration time-histories and elementary reaction rate constants. These experimental methods are the mainstay of this ARO research program at Stanford.
