Computational Engineering of Multiscale Transport in Small-scale Surface Based Energy Conversion (CEMTEC)
3D reconstruction of anode 3x3 μm element and contours of pressure in CFD simulations.
Scope of project
The scope of the present work is to develop a numerical tool for the simulation of multicomponent
reacting flows in porous media with specific applications in solid oxide fuel
cells (SOFC) and microreactors for portable power generation. The collaboration among
different partners will provide to the numerical groups the data needed for the implementation
and validation of novel accurate models. Moreover, once the models are implemented
and are ready to simulate realistic systems, the experimental groups will benefit
from the calculations in optimizing their experimental setups and eventually in building a
micro-fuel cell prototype.
