Abstract:

This report describes a study performed under ARO sponsorship, addressing the investigation of a novel way to reduce complex and extensive oxidation reaction mechanisms for fuel mixtures containing hundreds of species to a much smaller number of progress variables, typically by a factor of ten. The study has also been extended to computing laminar flames. Because the results have been documented in several papers published in the refereed literature and manuscripts, this final report is in the form of an Executive Summary succinctly describing the results.
