In this study, numerical modeling of air and fuel flows, electrochemical processes, heat and mass transfer and electric potential fields and related electric current has been attempted for a disk shape planar solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). This is the extension of the previous similar works on a tubular type solid oxide fuel cell, Nishino et al. (2003) and Li and Suzuki (2004). Numerical model to be established can be used as an effective means to simulate the phenomena in the cell. Such information can be used in the optimum design and thermal management of SOFC.
