This work represents continued development of a high pressure combustion chemistry mechanism (HP-Mech) for C2 mixtures with exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) at Princeton University. New burning velocity measurements were performed for ethane flames using the expanding spherical flame method at pressures from 1 to 20 atm with carbon dioxide and water vapor dilution. By holding the adiabatic flame temperature constant with dilution, the chemical effects of these diluents are investigated. These new measurements, as well as previous work with acetylene and ethylene, are used to improve and validate HP-Mech for C2 fuels.
