A detailed approach to model transport, heterogeneous chemistry, and electrochemistry in solid-oxide fuel cells

This e-book lays out a numerical framework for the precise description of heterogeneous chemistry, electrochemistry and porous media delivery in solid-oxide gasoline cells (SOFC). Assuming hydrogen because the purely electrochemically lively species, a changed Butler-Volmer equation is used to version the electrochemical cost move.

Advanced Information Systems Engineering: 8th International Conference, CAiSE'96 Heraklion, Crete, Greece, May 20–24, 1996 Proceedings

This ebook offers the refereed complaints of the eighth foreign convention on complicated details structures Engineering, CAiSE '96, held in Herakleion, Crete, Greece, in might 1996. The 30 revised complete papers integrated within the booklet have been chosen from a complete of a few a hundred submissions.

Engineering Turbulence Modelling and Experiments 5

Turbulence is without doubt one of the key matters in tackling engineering stream difficulties. As strong pcs and actual numerical equipment are actually to be had for fixing the circulate equations, and because engineering functions almost always contain turbulence results, the reliability of CFD research relies more and more at the functionality of the turbulence types.

Through the soles of his boots Bill could feel a faint, distant tremor in the deck. " he asked Tembo out of the corner of his mouth. "Main drive, not the Bloater Drive. Atomic engines.
