1. A comparison of literature models for the oxidation of normal heptane
Published: 2/1/2014
Authors: David A Sheen, Wing Tsang
Abstract: The development of detailed chemical kinetic models has proceeded unabated since the pioneering work of Dixon-Lewis and coworkers forty-five years ago. In that time, computational power has increased ten million-fold, and yet, we do not have a conse ...

2. Kinetics of H atom attack on unsaturated hydrocarbons using spectral uncertainty propagation and minimization techniques
Published: 7/2/2012
Authors: David A Sheen, Claudette M. (Claudette) Rosado-Reyes, Wing Tsang
Abstract: Unsaturated hydrocarbons are an important component of hydrocarbon fuels and intermediates in their oxidation. Under rich conditions, H atom attack is one of the principle pathways of the decomposition of these unsaturated compounds. Consequently, it ...

3. Multichannel Decomposition and Isomerization of Octyl Radicals
Published: 10/9/2008
Authors: Wing Tsang, William S McGivern, Jeffrey A Manion
Abstract: The thermal cracking patterns from the decomposition and isomerization of octyl-1 radicals have been determined from the pyrolysis of n-octyl iodide in single pulse shock tube experiments at temperatures in the 850-1000 K range and pressures near 2 b ...

4. Isomerization and Decomposition Reactions in the Pyrolysis of Branched Hydrocarbons: 4-Methyl-1-Pentyl Radical
Published: 7/31/2008
Authors: William S McGivern, Iftikhar Ahmad Awan, Wing Tsang, Jeffrey A Manion
Abstract: The kinetics of the decomposition of 4-methyl-1-pentyl radicals have been studied from 927 1068 K at pressures of 1.78 2.44 bar using a single pulse shock tube with product analysis. The reactant radicals were formed from the thermal C I bond fissio ...

5. Development of an Experimental Database and Kinetic Models for Surrogate Jet Fuels
Published: 3/1/2007
Authors: M Colket, T Edwards, S Williams, N Cernansky, D L Miller, Fokion N. Egolfopoulos, P Linstedt, Ram Seshadri, F L Dryer, C K Law, Daniel G Friend, David Lenhert, H Pitsch, A Sarofim, M Smooke, Wing Tsang
Abstract: The engineering and scientific community ha been searching for the identification of surrogate fuels that can reasonably represent the performance and emissions behavior of jet fuels (e.g. Jet A and JP-8) in engines. Many proposals exist in the liter ...

6. Ring Expansion Reactions in the Thermal Decomposition of t-Butyl-1,3-Cyclopentadiene
Published: 11/30/2006
Authors: William S McGivern, Jeffrey A Manion, Wing Tsang
Abstract: The thermal decomposition of t-butyl-1,3-cyclopentadiene has been investigated in single pulse shock tube studies at shock pressures of 182 260 kPa and temperatures of 996 1127 K. Isobutene (2-methylpropene), 1,3-cyclopentadiene, and toluene are obse ...

7. Mechanism and Rate Constants for the Decomposition of 1-Pentenyl Radicals
Published: 7/1/2006
Author: Wing Tsang
Abstract: This paper is concerned with the mechanisms and rate constants for decomposition of 1-penten-3-yl , 1-penten-4-yl and 1-penten-5-yl radicals. They are formed from radical attack on the 1-pentene that is an important decomposition product of normal al ...

8. The Film Boiling Reactor: A New Environment for Chemical Processing
Published: 7/1/2006
Authors: Bryan J Urban, Charles Thomas Avedisian, Wing Tsang
Abstract: A new platform, based on film boiling, is described for chemical processing by catalytic decomposition of organic liquids. A model for conversion of pure methanol to hydrogen and carbon monoxide is used to illustrate the operational and performance c ...

9. Energy Transfer Effects During the Multichannel Decomposition of Ethanol
Published: 8/1/2004
Author: Wing Tsang
Abstract: Rate constants and expressions for the initial processes in the decomposition of ethanol have been derived on the basis of existing experimental and estimated results. Energy transfer effects on the multichannel decomposition processes have been det ...

10. Progress in the Development of Combustion Databases for Liquid Fuels
Published: 1/21/2004
Author: Wing Tsang
Abstract: This paper describes the present situation regarding chemical kinetic databases for the simulation of the combustion of liquid fuels. Past work in the area is summarized. Much is known about the, reactions of the smaller fragments from combustion p ...
