This work presents the results of a study of a new radial configuration proposed for the gas flow field for a PEM fuel cell. The objective of this study is to understand the effects of this configuration on the fuel cell performance. The results are compared with the radial designs proposed in previous analysis. The proposed designs on this work show an improvement on the cell performance, with a better use of the reaction area compared with a flow free radial design. The results also show that the effect of channeling the flow inside these radial configurations helps to improve the fuel cell performance.
