Diffuse Double Layer

At the electrode-electrolyte interface, there is a thin layer of space charge in a diffuse double layer. This may be of interest when modeling devices such as electrochemical capacitors and nanoelectrodes. This tutorial example shows how to couple the Nernst-Planck equations to the ... Read More

Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy

Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is a common technique in electroanalysis. It is used to study the harmonic response of an electrochemical system. A small, sinusoidal variation is applied to the potential at the working electrode, and the resulting current is analyzed in the ... Read More

Orange Battery

This tutorial example models the currents and the concentration of dissolved metal ions in a battery (corrosion cell) made from an orange and two metal nails. This type of battery is commonly used in chemistry lessons. Instead of an orange, lemons or potatoes can also be used. Read More

Localized Corrosion

Galvanic corrosion between two different phases (alpha and beta phases) in a metallic (magnesium) alloy is simulated for a representative cross-sectional microstructure configuration. A key feature in the model formulation is the implementation of both anodic and cathodic regions at ... Read More

Stress Corrosion

Steel pipelines are often subjected to complex stress/strain conditions in the oil and gas industry. Additionally, pipes are subjected to significant longitudinal strain due to soil movement. For the elastoplastic stress simulation, the _Solid Mechanics_ interface is used with the small ... Read More

Galvanic Corrosion with Electrode Deformation

This 2D model demonstrates how to model a galvanic couple in which the corrosion of the anode causes a geometry deformation. The parameter data used is for an Magnesium Alloy (AE44) - mild steel couple in brine solution (salt water). Read More

A Two Phase Model For A Five Layer PEM Fuel Cell MEA

A low temperature PEM fuel cell produces water on the cathode side, and for higher currents liquid water will form in the porous layers and in the flow field The presence of liquid water has a large impact on the humidification of the ion-conducting polymer electrolyte, the transport of ...

Corrosion Protection of a Ship Hull

Impressed current cathodic protection is a commonly employed strategy to mitigate the ship hull corrosion where an external current is applied to the hull surface, polarizing it to a lower potential. In this model, the effect of propeller coating on the current demand is demonstrated. Read More

Under-Deposit Corrosion

In this model, the effect of corrosion product on galvanic corrosion between a magnesium alloy (AE44) and mild steel in contact with brine solution is presented, wherein deformed boundaries due to both deposition of corrosion product as well as dissolution of magnesium are considered. ...

Potential Profile in Batteries and Electrochemical Cells

The purpose of this model is to visualize the electric potential in an electrochemical cell, for example a battery. This is done at OCV and during operation. In a battery, this would correspond to OCV, discharge, and recharge. The potential profile is explained both for cells with planar ... Read More
