Descriptif des activités de recherche

We perform multiscale modelling of the manufacturing process for electrode materials used in Li-ion batteries. Special attention is directed towards blended electrodes. Microstructure simulations are carried out by Coarse-grained molecular dynamics. These results feed our electrochemical and mechanical models, which are solved by using the finite element method.
