Chemo-mechanical Coupling in Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage Materials

Many energy related materials rely on transport of ions into and out of electrodes and membranes, for example, Li ions in batteries, O ions in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) and steam electrolyzers, and H ions in hydrogen storage devices. Significant mechanical stresses often accompany these changes in chemical composition, also referred to as chemical expansion. For example, Pr0.1Ce0.9O2-δ, a candidate solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) cathode material, exhibits a >200% increase in its e

The ACSM recommends exercise that employs large muscle groups, is rhythmic or dynamic, can be maintained continuously and is aerobic in nature (ACSM, 2006; Pollock et al., 1998). This type of exercise results in larger increases in VO2max. Activities that would fit into this category include walking, running, swimming and cycling.
