Today, the development of devices of electrochemical conversion of energy to “high temperatures” Powerful and reliable fact appeal to different axs of research both technological and scientific. The expected progress on these devices requires conducting front of studies on the components as well as on their integration. The heart of these systems is the electrochemical cell to solid oxides whose structure is a multilayer complex behavior involving different areas of physics. The electrochemistry of solids, physico-chemistry of ceramics, the thermal or still the mechanics of materials are all areas to consider describing and analyzing properly the response of such systems. It is therefore essential to develop methods that are capable of understanding the behavior of electrochemical cells in their together taking into account the different couplings existing. In the field of fuel cells SOFC one of the important characteristics of the materials used as solid electrolytes is their ability to drive the ions at high temperature.
