Application Since the introduction of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to automotive engineering in the late seventies, this sophisticated technology has developed to become mainstream in almost all areas of vehicle design from aerodynamics to fuel injection. The complex CFD codes developed for these applications are now being applied in the development of fuel cell technology.

In the few years since CFD techniques were first used in fuel cell research, the advances in fuel cell technology have been marked.
