The fuel library within the standard GT-power software distribution does not comprise of all the species needed to describe LLNL surrogate fuels [15], and hence it was modified to accommodate the following species: cyclopentane, 1-hexene and 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene.
Of particular relevance are the species Isopentane ([4.4 %.sup.vo1], [P.sub.sat] = 0.91 bar), N-Pentane ([1.4 %.sup.vo1], [P.sub.sat] = 0.68 bar) and Cyclopentane ([4.4 %.sup.vo1], [P.sub.sat] = 0.42 bar) as together they represent 10% of the fuel content and their saturation pressures at ambient temperature are in the range achievable by the late IVO setting.
Here, the "traffic" profile is characterized by the "lingering exhaust" fingerprints, consisting of a strong presence of volatile 2-methylpentane in the air, but also of low-volatility cyclopentane. The specialty gasoline component, 2,3,4-trimethylpentane, is also present.
hexane and cyclopentane, 4-methyl- are present in good percentage among the major compounds in case of catalytic oil which are absentamong the major components in case of thermal oil.
The first discovered class of isoprostanes included the [F.sub.2]-IsoPs, named according to the type of cyclopentane ring [35].
