Title: Solid oxide fuel cell with transitioned cross-section for improved anode gas management at the open end

Solid oxide fuel cell with transitioned cross-section for improved anode gas management at the open end A solid oxide fuel cell (400) is made having a tubular, elongated, hollow, active section (445) which has a cross-section containing an air electrode (452) a fuel electrode (454) and solid oxide electrolyte (456) between them, where the fuel cell transitions into at least one inactive section (460) with a flattened parallel sided cross-section (462, 468) each cross-section having channels (472, 474, 476) in them which smoothly communicate with each other at an interface section (458).
