Tune into this webinar to learn about the new functionality in the Chemical Reaction Engineering, Batteries & Fuel Cells, Corrosion, Electrochemistry, and Electrodeposition modules in COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.3.

A few of the most interesting updates are:

  • The chemical species transport and reaction interfaces have been extended with functionality for transport and reactions in porous media including fractures (3D shell structures). Using the ready-made transport interfaces, it is now possible to study transport and reactions in porous media with fracture surfaces running through the porous structure. It is also possible to study transport and reactions along the fracture surfaces alone.
  • Two new transport interfaces have been introduced: the Nernst-Planck Equation and the Electrophoretic Transport interfaces. Both interfaces can be used to accurately model the transport and reactions in electrolytes.
  • The Corrosion Module now has a new Current Distribution, Boundary Elements interface for modeling systems with infinite electrolyte domains, such as for modeling corrosion protection of offshore constructions.
  • The modules for the modeling of electrochemical systems now feature four different models for the conservation of charge: electroneutrality, water-based with electroneutrality, supporting electrolyte, and Poisson. Also, new boundary conditions for membranes and new subdomain features for thin electrolyte domains (3D shells) are introduced.

During the webinar, you will hear more about this and other exciting news as well as see a live demonstration of the new functionality. You can ask questions throughout the presentation or during the Q&A session at the end.
