Modeling Corrosion and Electrochemical Systems

For engineers working on electrochemical systems or corrosion protection, simulating electrochemical cells is a valuable part of process development and design. In this webinar, we introduce techniques for modeling and coupling electrochemical reactions, current distribution, and mass transport in COMSOL Multiphysics. Applications discussed will include the simulation of current distribution in an electrochemical system and the optimization of local material fluxes.

The webinar includes a live demonstration and concludes with a Q&A session.

CORROSION: Model of an oil platform surrounded by 52 sacrificial aluminum anodes. Simulation is used to optimize their position for the best possible corrosion protection of the steel structure.

Dr Edmund Dickinson

Edmund studied chemistry at the University of Oxford from 2004 to 2008. He then continued on for a doctorate at Oxford, researching the charge and mass transfer properties of electrolyte solutions. He joined COMSOL as an application engineer, where he specializes in chemistry, heat transfer and fluid flow.
