Abstract

The ethanol-air reduced mechanism is developed from its detailed mechanism and studied its properties such as flame speed and ignition delay time behind a reflected shock wave for the simulation of application. These calculated properties agree with the experiments and simulations of other mechanisms. Then liquid ethanol-air two-phase detonation is simulated using two-phase compressible Euler equations with a one-step overall ethanol-air reaction mechanism to study its detonation characteristics. At this time the developed ethanol-air mechanism was too large to simulate detonation. The ethanol-air detonation structure with an evaporation of the initial mixture is simulated to see the liquid phase effects on its structure.
