Etude expérimentale et modélisation de la décomposition thermique de l'exo-tricyclo[]décane.

Abstract : The thermal decomposition of the exo-tricyclo[,6]decane, a tricyclic alkane which is
part of some fuels used in aeronautics, was studied at the DCPR in the scope of the
development of the cooling system of the engine of hypersonic aircrafts.
The experimental study of the thermal decomposition of this alkane was performed with a jet
stirred reactor, at atmospheric pressure, at high dilution, at residence times between 0.5 and 6s
and for a wide range of temperatures (673-1173 K). The formation of 53 products of the
reaction was observed during this study.
A mechanism of the pyrolysis of the exo-tricyclo[,6]decane was developed (2789
reactions ; 929 molecular, radical et biradical species) and was validated from experimental
results. The kinetic analysis of the mechanism highlighted the importance of the reactions of
unimolecular initiation on the consumption of the reactant.
