We investigated the efficacy of fuel stratification in a pre-mixture of di-methyl ether (DME) and n-Butane, which have different auto-ignition characteristics, for reducing the pressure rise rate (PRR) of homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) engines. A new chemical reaction model was created by mixing DME and n-Butane and compared to existing chemical reaction models to verify the effects. The rate of maximum pressure rise depends on mixture ratio. When DME was charged with stratification and n-butane was charged with homogeneity, the maximum PRR was the lowest. The calculations were performed using the SENKIN application of CHEMKIN-II.
