DEM Battery Manufacturing Paper Published in ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces

Our latest paper, covering large-scale discrete element simulations of the manufacturing process of lithium-ion battery electrodes, was published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.  Images from this paper were also selected as cover art for the issue. This was our first paper with post-doc Ishan Srivastava and represents over two years of work and millions of CPU-hours of simulations.  We’re very excited about what this work represents for fundamentally understanding how conductive binder domains (CBDs) form during electrode coating, drying, and calendering.  Congratulations Ishan and the rest of the team!  DOI: 10.1021/acsami.0c08251
