CFDRC Unveils Fuel Cell Design App
Posted Fri August 17, 2001 @03:12PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News CFDRC is showing [pdf] a prototype design application for fuel cell stack optimization. The application follows the current trend of tailoring a CFD program to match the expertise of the end user. In the case of the fuel cell program, the input parameters are defined in terms customary to the engineer without a need for in-depth CFD knowledge.

The package handles geometry generation, mesh generation, model definition, computing the solution, and post-processing - all in terms familiar to the design engineer.

Most impressive is the ability to define custom "cost" functions for automatic optimization of the fuel cell stack. Several cost functions can even be combined for multi-dimensional optimization.
