Abstract

By using a three dimensional computational method,
gas flow and heat transfer have been investigated and
analyzed for both cathode / anode ducts of proton
exchange membrane fuel cells. The Brinkman-
Forchheimer-extended Darcy model is employed to
investigate the flow inside the porous layer of the duct.
Effects of inertial coefficient, together with permeability,
effective thermal conductivity, thickness of the porous
layer, on gas flow and heat transfer are studied.
