Protecting Against Atmospheric Corrosion with Simulation

March 21, 2019

Certain environmental factors, such as humidity and snow, can lead to atmospheric corrosion. The result? Rusty bikes, cars, and other metal structures. Simulation can protect against this effect.

Digital Twins and Model-Based Battery Design

February 20, 2019

By combining high-fidelity multiphysics models with lightweight models and measured data, engineers can create digital twins to understand, predict, optimize, and control real-world systems.

Keynote Video: Simulating the Drying of Cellular Foods

December 25, 2018

How about them (dried) apples? Empa uses multiscale modeling to analyze the dehydration of soft cellular food products, such as dried fruit, and scale their processes for mass production.

The Art and Science of Electrochemical Plating

November 13, 2018

Electrochemical plating, a surface finishing technique used in the automotive, electronics, corrosion protection, aerospace, and defense industries, is both an art and a science. Let us explain.

How to Model Ion-Exchange Membranes and Donnan Potentials

August 29, 2018
