Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Several examples of fuel cell behavior for which mechanical properties and swelling are believed to be responsible are presented. The mechanical properties of membranes that have been determined thus far are described. Specifically, dependence of Young's Modulus on water content and temperature for Nafion and other fuel cell membranes is presented, as will dynamic behaviors of Nafion, such as constant-stress creep and swelling. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting and Fall Showcase (Cincinnati, OH 10/30/2005-11/4/2005).
