Jelly Roll Using a Flattened Geometry
Application ID: 105281
This example replicates the results of the Jelly Roll tutorial example using a flattened representation of the wound spiral-based geometry. See that model entry for details on the background, original geometry, materials, and the general physics setup.
Mapping the original problem to a flattened 3d geometry brings several advantages: The curvature of the wound layers does not need to be resolved in the mesh, reducing the problem size, and results visualization along the spiral direction is facilitated.
Transport equations on the flattened geometry neglect the effect of the local curvature of the layers. This effect will however be shown to have a very limited impact on the results.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- either the Battery Design Module, Corrosion Module, Electrochemistry Module, Electrodeposition Module, or Fuel Cell & Electrolyzer Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
