Northumbria University Dissertation

My dessertation for the third year in Northumbria University, was to design and improve the effiecieny of bipolar plates used in Polymer Electrolyte Water Electrolysers and Fuel Cells.
I had used Solidwords to design the bipolar plates and also 3D printed them to showcase the models.
I then used COMSOL to simulate the flowfields of fuel cells & PEWE.
I managed to achieve a First degree based on my results and analysis although cold have improved on he discussion part of this report.
I was able to find a better Flow path for the bipolar plates however, needed more time to test out more different designs as improvements could definetly have been made.
