Fluent Mechanism Heptane Need :)
If somebody can send me an Heptane mechanism, I would be very glad :). I'm surprise that almost nothing is on this large forum about heptane flamelet model and heptane mechanisms.

Generally I would like to compare the EDC and PDF-flamelet combustion models. Unfortunately have only the large n-heptane mechanisms which are not proper for any cfd combustion sim.

San diego website is offreing a good mechanism , 272 reactions and 55 species .
it's for JP10 and n-heptane , but you have to compile the basic mechanism to the n-heptane one , when you will visit the website you will understand

The University of Connecticut also provides mechanisms for quite a lot of fuels. Some of them are almost sufficiently reduced for the 50 species limit of FLUENT, so only little adjustments will necessary.

Have a look if any of them suits you:

Good luck with your sims, I hope you brought powerful computer and a simple flow for such a complex fuel...
