New publication co-authored by IEn researchers in Energy

2021 / 09 / 14

New publication entitled "Mathematical approaches to modelling the mass transfer process in solid oxide fuel cell anode" was published in a highly-ranked magazine Energy. The article was co-authored by Marcin Blesznowski (PhD) and Prof. Jakub Kupecki from IEn's HiTEP. The publication discusses results of a comprehensive analysis of anodes of SOFC in order to develop new CFD tool for studies of mass transport in porous structures. As a results of combining experimental and numerical techniques, model which enables reduction of cost and time required for the optimization of the mass transport process through SOC's porous electrode was proposed and validated.
