Abstract: A study of the through-plane thermal conductivity of various gas diffusion layer materials (GDL) and the thermal contact resistance between the GDL and an electrolytic iron surface as a function of compression load. These factors were anaylized with the intention of gaining knowledge about in-situ fuel cells. Thermal conductivity measurements were taken by a modified version of the guarded heat flux meter device recommended by the ASTM standard.
