    Abstract

    A general purpose 3D finite element method model has been developed for the estimation of the compression pressure distribution in fuel cell stacks. The model can be used for the optimisation of any type of fuel cell structure at any temperature. The model was validated with pressure sensitive film measurements using PEFC stack components that had low rigidity and were highly deformable.
