However, only R16 is considered to be an important reaction by FAST2 method and plays a positive role in output temperature.
In order to validate sensitivity indices measured by FAST1 and FAST2 methods, the profiles of sensitivity indices for the FAST1 and Sobol' methods are compared.
In order to validate the performance of the FAST2 method, 3 modified models of [H.sub.2]/air combustion are designed.
The performance of the FAST2 method has been validated by using it to GSA of the detailed mechanisms of [H.sub.2]/air mixture.
Figure 5 shows the 8 most important reactions identified by FASTI and FAST2 methods.
These results are in good agreement with sensitivity indices measured by the FAST2 method in Figure 5.
The FAST2 method can be a valuable tool to detect the importance of input parameters, and it will be an effective tool for modelling detailed mechanisms and diagnosing combustion reaction kinetic models.
The sensitivity indices measured by the FAST2 method can better reflect the impact of input parameters on the output parameters in the autoignition process.
The General Services Administration has released the final solicitation for the FAST2 governmentwide acquisition contract, a set-aside for 8(a) information technology firms.
"The original FAST contract was a great success for both our 8(a) vendor partners and GSA, and we look forward to providing more opportunities for 8(a) businesses under FAST2," said Donna Bennett, commissioner of GSA's Federal Supply Service.
