The original concept for FAST-FC was born in 2002 during David B. Harvey's research at Queen's University. Faced with the inability of commercial software to meet the needs for cutting edge fuel cell design and fabrication, David (at the behest of his academic supervisors, Jon Pharoah and Kunal Karan) began the work on the equations and algorithms that laid the foundation for the FAST suite. The work was furthered during his doctorate work, funded by the United States Department of Energy and Ballard Power Systems, which added the capability to simulate the durability of electrocatalysts and electrocatalyst supports to the source code.
From the initial conception in 2002, FAST-FC remains a dedicated open-source project released under the GNU Public License Version 3.
