The four considered scenarios are composed of scenario 1: calculated with the presented model; scenario 2: calculated without considering the temperature change in the exhaust gas due to evaporation and thermolysis; scenario 3: considering the temperature change in the exhaust gas due to evaporation/thermolysis but not including the temperature changes along the mixing section because of heat losses to the environment; and scenario 4: calculated without any temperature changes and, therefore, the same temperature along the mixing section.
