Modelo Mesoscópico de una Membrana de Intercambio Protónico

Palabras clave: Electroquímica, Física Computacional, Dinámica Browniana, Celdas de Combustible


Se presenta un modelo mesoscópico hibrido continuo discreto, para una membrana de intercambio protónico para una celda de combustible, donde se emplean condiciones de frontera en la dirección  similares a las que estaria sometida una membrana si estuviera en una celda en operación, en las direcciones  y  se consideran condiciones periódicas. Debido a las características hibridas continuo-discreto del modelo permite realizar una representación completa de la electrostática del sistema, además de incluir la morfología estructural de las cadenas poliméricas que genera regiones de dominios iónicos percolados.
