International Conference on Fuel Cell Science, Engineering and Technology (3d: 2005: Rochester, NY) Ed. by R.K. Shah and S.G. Kandlikar.



791 pages




One hundred and two papers from the May 2005 conference identify barriers to accelerating fuel cell technology development, and present recent advances in proton exchange membrane fuel cell components, solid oxide fuel cells, water transport phenomena, thermodynamic analysis, fuel reforming technology, performance testing, and automotive applications. The researchers investigate lattice Boltzmann simulations of gaseous mixture flow in porous electrodes, the tear resistance of proton exchange membranes, the transient characteristics of a tubular SOF cell, and a methane fueled direct carbon fuel cell system. Other topics include autothermal reforming of diesel, the design of microchannel fuel processors, a PEM fuel cell/solar panel hybrid vehicle, and hydrogen and fuel cell development in China.
