An open-source code toolbox for the numerical simulation of multiphase flow in a PEM fuel cell has been developed using OpenFOAM. The toolbox includes a main program, relevant library classes, and a constructed simulation case for a co-flow galvanostatic simulation. The mathematical model accounts for liquid water formation, transport, and their effects in the fuel cell.
