In the present work, the pyrolysis of acetylene was studied under steel vacuumcarburizing conditions in a tubular flow reactor. The pyrolysis temperature ranged from650 °C to 1050 °C. The partial pressure of acetylene in the feed mixture was 10 and 20mbar, respectively, while the rest of the mixture consisted of nitrogen. The total pressureof the mixture was 1.6 bar. A kinetic mechanism which consists of seven species andnine reactions has been used in the commercial computational fluid dynamics (CFD)software Fluent. The species transport and reaction model of Fluent was used in thesimulations. A comparison of simulated and experimental results is presented in thispaper.
