Continuous Electrodeposition Modelling : Tertiary Current Distribution on a Plane Electrode-Effect of Axial Diffusion at Low Peclet Number
The purpose of the work is to develop a general model of the phenomena occurring in continuous electrodepositon processes. This study involves the adaptation of the commercial software FLUX-EXPERT® — based on a finite element method — for determining the current distribution in an electrolyzer, from the primary distribution to the tertiary. This latter case requires a simultaneous solving of electrical and mass balance equations for deriving the electrical potential Ф and the concentration C of the electroactive species, which are strongly coupled at the electrolyte-cathode interface.
