Abstract

A methodology for microstructure design of fuel cell materials is developed. Statistical continuum mechanics theory is used to link mechanical, magnetic, and transport properties to microstructures represented. Texture, composite volume fractions, grain boundary character distribution, particle to particle and the void distributions are taken into consideration by using pair correlation functions and higher order statistics. Effective properties for transport and mechanical properties were calculated. The use of scattering techniques provides 3-dimensional information on two-point statistics. The information for microstructure is used in a general framework for microstructure design to optimize the properties of fuel cell materials.
