The results obtained from the modeling of thermal partial oxidation of kerosene based Jet-A fuel are presented using one dimensional chemical modeling. Two detailed kinetic models for alkenes chemistry ranging between C8 to C16 were evaluated and compared against experimental data of thermal partial oxidation of Jet-A fuel. The key difference between these two kinetic models was the inclusion of model for soot formation reactions. Chemical modeling was performed using dodecane to represent Jet-A fuel.

The results showed that the model with soot reactions was significantly more accurate in predicting reformate products from Jet-A. In particular, the formation of carbon monoxide, methane and acetylene closely followed the experimental data with the model that included soot formation reactions. The results revealed that the soot formation reactions promoted the smaller hydrocarbons to decompose via the alternate kinetic pathways and from additional radical formation. The results also reveal that the inclusions of soot formation reactions are critical in the modeling of thermal partial oxidation of fuels for fuel reforming.
