A numerical study has been carried out to investigate the impact of adding syngas into JP-8 fuel. A new chemical mechanism has been assembled from existing mechanism of JP-8 and syngas and has been examined by comparing with the experimental data from literatures. The mechanism was then applied to Cantera zero-dimension constant internal energy and constant volume model and one-dimensional (1D) freely propagating flame model to calculate the ignition delay time and laminar burning speed, respectively. The simulations were carried out over a large range of temperature (700–1000 K), blending ratio (0–20% syngas), and H2/CO ratio (10/90 to 50/50). Simulation results showed that the blending syngas with JP-8 will slightly increase the ignition delay time and laminar burning speed.
