2D Fuel Cell Modeling

I have few difficulties in 2D PEM Fuel Cell modeling, Can anyone guide/suggest me on following topics

Domain Coupling UDFs for SOURCE TERM in Momentum & Species Transport equation. UDFs for Electrochemical Equation, which is required to obtain current density along Fuel Cell.

would appriciate any help.

Re: 2D Fuel Cell Modeling
Try searching on OR or other search engines for scientific articles. Some 3D modeling work has been done already. You will find many papers on UDF for electrochemical equations is very specific thing. you will have to read UDS for other things. Try journals like J. Electrochemical Soc., J. Power Sources. One Dissertation by P T Nguyen reports work done on CFX. ( Best of Luck,

History repeat it self
guess what happenHistory repeat it self.

I have the same problem as you

I am using the Fluent 14 and I want to simulate a PEM fuel cell.
The only tutorial of PEM fuel cell of Fluent is from 6.3 version.
I use it to Fluent 14 and I follow the steps but the results does not the same, also some data and parameters are different.

Anybody know if the tutorial of 6.3 Fluent is working to Fluent 14 too?
I think now you had finish your thesis peacefully.
Can you help me to overcome my problems.
or send me your cas files.

Thank you
Emad G.
