Abstract

Diverse kinetic models for iso-octane, n-heptane, toluene and ethanol i.e. main gasoline surrogates, have been investigated. The models have different levels of complexity and strong and weak points. Firstly, ignition delay times for various fuel blends have been calculated and compared with published shock tube measurements. Kinetic models which are capable of distinguishing between Primary and Toluene Reference Fuels have been used further on in a zero-dimensional Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition engine model to predict auto-ignition. The modelling results have been compared to the experimental results obtained in a single cylinder research engine. A discussion has been made on the ability of these models to predict autoignition.
