An open-source code toolbox capable of predicting the distribution of the major physical quantities which are transported within a PEM fuel cell has been created using OpenFOAM. The toolbox can be used to rapidly gain important insights into the cell working processes which are essential for design optimization. It consists of a main program, relevant library classes, and a constructed simulation case for a co-flow galvanostatic run.
