Lab Director: Dr. Hongtan Liu

Studies conducted in this lab includes: (1) The study of the mechanisms of water transfer in PEM fuel cells by experimentally determining water transfer due to various mechanisms. (2) Modeling the performance of proton exchange membrane fuel cells and direct methanol fuel cells. (3) Develop multi-dimensional computational fluid dynamics models for various types of fuel cells. (4) Modeling and experimentally study of two-phase flow phenomena in fuel cells. (5) Flow field design optimization for hydrogen PEM fuel cells and direct methanol fuel cells. (6) Novel techniques in measurement of local current densities in PEM fuel cells and DMFCs.
