Simulation plays a crucial role in various applications in electrochemical engineering and industrial electrochemistry, from electrolysis and electrochemical sensors to batteries, corrosion, and electrodeposition. This course serves as an introduction to using COMSOL Multiphysics to model these electrochemical systems. Students will learn how to simulate critical elements such as current densities and electrochemical reactions and how to integrate these components for accurate simulations. Throughout the course, students will gain hands-on experience with COMSOL Multiphysics by solving simple exercises, allowing them to familiarize themselves with the software's basic features and functionality.

The course will take place as follows:

  • May 22 from 9.00 to 11.00 AM
  • May 23 from 9.00 AM to 12.00 PM
  • May 24 from 9.00 AM to 12.00 PM

Short bio

Donya Ahmadkhaniha received her PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Tehran in February 2016. Her PhD thesis was about the effect of induced microstructural modification by friction stir processing on mechanical and corrosion resistance of pure and composite biodegradable Mg. In November 2016, she started her career as a postdoctoral researcher in the Surface Technology group at Jönköping University. At Jönköping University, besides teaching materials engineering and manufacturing to bachelor and master students, she has participated in different projects related to alloy electrodeposition and simulation, electropolishing, corrosion, laser cladding/alloying, and anodizing.
