Investigation of PEM fuel cell behavior: Swelling and viscoelastic properties

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Recent work on polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells has demonstrated the importance of membrane mechanical properties and swelling behavior on cell performance. Several examples of fuel cell behavior for which mechanical properties and swelling are believed to be responsible were presented. The mechanical properties of membranes determined thus far and their relevance to cell performance were discussed. This is an abstract of a paper presented ACS Fuel Chemistry Meeting (Washington, DC Fall 2005).
