Abstract

Despite the rapid combustion typically experienced in homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI), components in fuel mixtures do not ignite in unison or burn equally. In experiments and modeling of blends of diethyl ether (DEE) and ethanol (EtOH), the DEE led combustion and proceeded further toward completion. A numerical model of HCCI combustion of DEE and EtOH mixtures supported the isotopic findings. In general, HCCI combustion of fuel blends might have preferential combustion of some of the blend components. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 30th International Symposium on Combustion (Chicago, IL 7/25-30/2004).
