#ICYMI - Researchers develop overarching model of NOx formation in combustion @GreenCarCongres

A large amount of work has been devoted to improve the understanding of NOx formation mechanisms in combustion and to develop control strategies to reduce emissions. Restrictions on NOx emissions that used to apply only to large combustion systems such as power plants are now implemented on ever smaller scales … The objective of the present work is to establish and evaluate a state-of-the-art, non-optimized chemical kinetic model for homogeneous nitrogen chemistry in combustion. It is based on the work on nitrogen chemistry reported over the last decades, drawing also on recent advances in the knowledge of thermochemistry and reaction rates from theoretical work. The different mechanisms for formation and consumption of NO are discussed and the key reaction steps are evaluated. Different subsets of the model are validated against experimental data and the predictive capabi...
