Electrocoating of a Car Door

Application ID: 16171


This example models electrocoating of paint onto a car door in a time-dependent simulation. The deposited paint is highly resistive which results in lowered local deposition rates for coated areas.

A primary current distribution in combination with a film resistance model is used to describe the charge transport in the electrolyte.

The model is in 3D and uses an imported CAD geometry.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
