Abstract

This study presents a 3D CFD model for modeling gas evolution in anode channels of a DMFC under high stoichiometric feed. The improved two-phase model includes a new submodel for mass source and interphase transfer in anode channels. Case studies of typical flow field designs such as parallel and serpentine flow fields illustrate applications of the CFD model. Simulation results reveal that gas management of typical flow fields is ineffective under certain operating conditions. The CFD-based simulations are used to visualize and to analyze the gas evolution and flow patterns in anode channels. The developed CFD model is useful in flow field design for improving gas management in DMFC.
