Download here our detailed kinetic mechanisms for hydrocarbon fuels

modular mechanismThe kinetic schemes provided by CRECK Modeling at Politecnico di Milano are hierarchically organized: moving from the "Hydrogen mechanism" up to the "Complete mechanism: low and high temperature". All the schemes are self consistent, i.e., they already include the previous submechanisms. All the mechanisms are available with or without NOx reactions. All these mechanisms are in CHEMKIN format, they are compatible with version 3.6.2 and above.

The mechanisms are freely available.
