Project description

The redox reactions in a metal-metaloxide system are modelled with a phase field model, which incorporates diffusion, thermodynamics and electrochemical reactions. The required input variables are obtained by coupling the model to 2 thermodynamic databases and by execution of specific experiments to determine these parameters. Experiments are also used to verify the predictive nature of the model.
