A cell’s safety, power, and energy density depend on the electrochemistry and microstructure of its electrodes, which are made up of a complex array of particles.
Join us in this webinar to understand how particle simulation with Rocky can improve the electrode manufacturing process. While particle simulation can be used in a number of processes, in this webinar, we’ll focus on mixing/dispersing and calendering processes addressing particle modeling both at the equipment-level and microstructure-scales.
What you will learn:
We will discuss how to apply Rocky’s Eulerian statistics to compare changes in mixing operating conditions and mixer design. We will also demonstrate how engineers can study intensive mixing conditions, including high shear mixing, solvent dispersions and the slurry homogeneity. For the dry mixing process, you will learn how the mixing index is used to quantify the mixing time.
To simulate the calendering processes at the microstructure level, we’ll demonstrate the application of Rocky’s bond model and show you how it is applied to represent the binder material, the calendering press forces and their influence on the electrode porosity and transport properties computed, providing a better understanding of the calendering process and the associated microstructure changes.
