Validated surrogate models have been developed for two Fisher-Tropsch (F-T) fuels. The models started with a systematic approach to determine an appropriate surrogate fuel composition specifically tailored for the two alternative jet-fuel samples. A detailed chemical kinetic mechanism has been assembled for these model surrogates starting from literature sources, and then improved to ensure self-consistency of the kinetics and thermodynamic data. This mechanism has been tested against fundamental laboratory data on auto-ignition times, laminar flame-speeds, extinction strain rates, and NOx emissions. Literature data used to validate the mechanism include both the individual surrogate-fuel components and actual F-T fuel samples where available. As part of the validation, simulations were performed for a wide variety of experimental configurations, as well as a wide range of temperatures and equivalence ratios for fuel/air mixtures. Comparison of predicted surrogate-fuel behavior against data on real F-T fuel behavior also show the effectiveness of the surrogate-matching approach and the accuracy of the detailed-kinetics mechanisms. The resulting validated mechanism has been also reduced through application of automated mechanism reduction techniques to provide progressively smaller mechanisms, with different degrees of accuracy, that are reasonable for use in CFD simulations employing detailed kinetics.
