Combustion Science and Technology   191(11) 1972-1989   Oct 2018   [Refereed]
The interaction between nonthermal plasma (NTP) and fuel-air mixtures was studied both experimentally and by means of simulations, to elucidate their promotional effect on flame propagation. A promotional effect on flame propagation velocity was e...

<p>We propose a new DRG-based mechanism reduction method that considers heat release rate (HRR), transport of species, and reaction rate. In the original DRG method developed by T. Lu and C. K. Law, species importance is evaluated using only the r...
