Corrosion and Electrodeposition Modeling in COMSOL Multiphysics®

August 25, 2021 11:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. EDT

Back to Events Calendar

If you want to learn how to use simulation software to understand corrosion, corrosion protection, and electrodeposition, this is the course for you. As you will learn in the Corrosion & Electrodeposition course, all three of those processes can be described and investigated using high-fidelity models that include descriptions of electrode kinetics for multiple competing reactions, mixed potentials, balance of current and charge in the electrolyte and metallic structures, and chemical species transport.

During the 3-day training course, you will receive an introduction to the theory and assumptions behind the electrochemistry interfaces in the Corrosion Module and Electrodeposition Module, both add-ons to COMSOL Multiphysics. With this overview, you will have the background required for making the optimal selection of model descriptions for specific purposes and conditions. After attending the course, you will be able to model galvanic corrosion and impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP), which is used in subsurface and off-shore constructions that are immersed in aqueous media. You will also know how simulations may be used to control the quality of the deposited product in electrodeposition. The examples showcased in the course will account for ohmic, activation potential, and mass transport effects on corrosion processes, corrosion protection, and electrodeposition in 2D and 3D geometries.

Bertil Nistad
Technology Manager

Bertil Nistad currently works as a technology manager at COMSOL in Norway, and has participated in the development of the Corrosion Module. Before he joined COMSOL in 2009, he studied at NTNU, where he received his PhD in electronics and metamaterials. In 2017–2018, he worked as a principal engineer at FORCE Technology on different tasks, mostly concerning cathodic protection simulations.
