Project title:  Determination of the mechanical and thermomechanical behaviour of glass-ceramics used as sealants in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) and development of new measurement methods.

The aim of this study is to discover the thermal and mechanical properties of the glass ceramic, finding these properties helps us to improve the efficiency of solid oxide fuel cell and using it as a sealant in this fuel. In addition to the above mentioned to practice and getting familiar with methods of measurements used to achieve this goal.
