The couplings between diffusive transport and the temperature and species concentration distributions associated with low and intermediate temperature heptane oxidation are explored using an existing four-step heptane mechanism, tuned for elevated pressures. The energy and species concentration equations are augmented with diffusive fluxes for heat and species and solved numerically in a one-dimensional domain. The ignition delay times are also tabulated and compared with the zero-dimensional data reported in the literature.
