The Art and Science of Electrochemical Plating
Electrochemical plating, a surface finishing technique used in the automotive, electronics, corrosion protection, aerospace, and defense industries, is both an art and a science. Let us explain.
How to Model Ion-Exchange Membranes and Donnan Potentials
Get an introduction to the theory behind the Nernst-Planck-Poisson equations, Donnan potentials, and how to model ion-exchange membranes in batteries and fuel cells.
How to Model Sparging in COMSOL Multiphysics®
Sparging, the process of bubbling a gas into a liquid, is seen most notably in carbonation, such as for soda and seltzer water. This mass transfer process can be modeled in COMSOL Multiphysics®.
Optimizing Thermal Processes in Carbon Manufacturing with Simulation
A guest blogger from SGL Carbon GmbH demonstrates how his organization uses heat transfer simulation to optimize thermal processes in carbon manufacturing.
Modeling a Tubular Reactor for Optimized Polymer Manufacturing
Chemical engineers can model tubular reactors to optimize them for specific manufacturing and production processes, such as for the polymerization of polyester, as this example shows.
Analyzing Cyclic Voltammetry at a Microdisk Electrode with Simulation
What is cyclic voltammetry, and why is it important in the design of microdisk electrodes? We discuss all of this and more in this electrochemical engineering blog post.
Analyzing Fine Chemical Production in Plate Reactors
