Main Research Activities

The goal of ARTISTIC project is to develop a computational platform able to predict the link between the electrodes’ fabrication process and the electrochemical performance of the resulting lithium ion batteries. Each step of fabrication/processing (i.e. slurry preparation, slurry casting at the current collector, evaporation of the solvent, calendaring and electrolyte impregnation) will be modeled through a multiscale approach which needs of parametrization/validation of the proposed models with experimental data obtained throughout the entire battery fabrication process. My task is to simulate the fabrication process of the lithium-ion batteries using Coarse Grained Molecular Dynamics(CGMD) and Discrete Element Method (DEM) simulations.
