I need to predict the auto ignition temperature of diesel and gasoline fuels using Fluent. Does ANSYS have any chemistry for the combustion of these fuels? I can find only single step reactions in the Fluent database.

ANSYS now offers the Model Fuel Library from Reaction Design. The Model Fuel Library (MFL) is a library of detailed and validated reaction mechanisms for over 60 fuel components, which are relevant to combustion simulations in a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications. Gaseous components address natural gas, synthetic gas, biofuels, and blends. For liquid fuels, the fuel components can be used in formulating surrogates for a wide range of real-world fuels, including gasoline, diesel, jet-fuel, alternative fuels, fuel blends, and additives. The 2016 Model Fuel Library offering is encrypted for use with ANSYS software, including Chemkin-Pro/ Reaction Workbench, Energico, Forte CFD, and Fluent CFD (starting with R16). For more comprehensive information, please view the the attached Model Fuel Library Manual
