Paper Title:
Simulation of Glass Molding Process for Planar Type SOFC Sealing Devices

The glass sealant with pre-forming frame structure, used for joining dissimilar materials of planar type SOFC devices, was fabricated by molding process. The flow phenomena during glass molding were investigated by computational modeling. The physical properties of glass sealant fluid were constructed in numerical models. The process parameters, such as mold pressing velocity, initial glass fluid temperature (or viscosity of glass sealant), and initial mold temperature, were examined. As results, the sealants formability could be characterized by molten glass temperature, near the gap between upper and lower molds. If the temperature is greater than its glass transformation temperature Tg, the formability become better, and vice versa. Keywords: solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs), computational modeling, glass sealant.
