Assignment 2

  • This is a group assignment (nominally groups of three).
  • Select a project based on chemical reactors, or reactor networks.
  • Discuss the project with the instructor and group members.
    • Ideas include learning and extending existing cantera reactors.
    • Modeling a flame or combustor using a reactor network.
    • Investigating a kinetic process, such as ignition delay versus temperature, pressure, fuel, stoichiometry.
    • Compute a PSR S-Curve. Apply an unsteady periodic mixing rate and examine the effect on flame extinction and ignition.
  • Present the results of the project to the class.
