Mechanisms evaluation for reforming processes

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


The three mechanisms that describe the reaction kinetics for various combustion processes were evaluated against experimental data for a reforming process. M1 is the GRI-Mech 3.0 mechanism, originally designed to model combustion of natural gas. The M2 mechanism originated from a methane combustion mechanism, which was extended to include reactions for methanol, acetaldehyde, ethanol, and ethylene oxide. M3 was developed specifically to study soot formation and thus includes soot species, which will be used for the evaluation of soot formation. The three mechanisms can be used to predict the actual gas composition of a reforming process. The chosen mechanisms can be used to predict the gas composition in a reforming process but care needs to be taken so that the mechanisms are used in the area were their agreement is best. M1 showed the best agreement with experimental data. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the CHISA 2012 - 20th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering and PRES 2012 - 15th Conference PRES (Prague, Czech Republic 8/25-29/2012).
