CD-adapco receives a top award at Solid State Electrochemistry Workshop 2013.
New York and London. August 13, 2013
CD-adapco, the largest privately held CFD-focused provider of Computer Aided Engineering software, announced today that their work studying the electrochemistry of a resolve porous electrode within a lithium ion battery received a top award at this year’s Solid State Electrochemistry Workshop 2013 held at Heidelberg University. The workshop addresses, in a synergistic manner, mathematical modeling and numerical methods in electrochemical systems as well as latest advances in experimental techniques and relevant materials. The CD-adapco study highlighted the use of finite volume methods to simulate the electrochemical behavior of a previously reconstructed porous electrode geometry. This work used CD-adapco's flagship computer aided engineering product, STAR-CCM+.
Bob Spotnitz, co-author of the work and President of Battery Design LLC, commented, "The detailed study of porous electrodes is a rapidly growing area and to be acknowledged within this group is very positive." He added, "The tool set we have created with CD-adapco makes this possible for the average elecrochemist." Gaetan Damblanc, Battery Application Specialist at CD-adapco added, "We believe this work is at the sharp end of modern simulation technology and will provide greater insight in to the design of next generation electrodes."
