The application of a reduced, fuel-rich chemistry mechanism for n-Heptane partial oxidation was valid over the temperature range from 900 K to 1200 K and at the O/C ratio of 1.57. In this work, n-Heptane was utilized as a single fuel representative for diesel fuel to quantify CFD – Chemistry interation. The turbulence-reaction model is one of the standard combustion models developed in FLUENT, a commercial CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamic) software package. In this model, n-Heptane reduced chemistry mechanisms were coupled with the multi-dimensional CFD solver. The interaction between the chemical reactions and turbulence has been considered. In this paper, some preliminary results are presented and comparisons between the experiments and the simulations are made.
