Abstract
This work revisits the finite-rate chemistry mechanism for AGIL in light of recent rate measurements for kinetic processes. The effect of temperature dependence of kinetic processes measured only at room temperature conditions is explored by assuming a square-root dependence upon temperature in line with kinetic theory. A sensitivity study is performed to elucidate the relative impact of each chemical kinetic process modeled with respect to the larger set of modeled chemical kinetic processes. And reactant mixing is examined, with documentation of the effects of the reactant mixing predictions upon recent multi-watt power extraction experiments.
