Battery Safety Science Webinar Series: Multiphysics and Multiscale Modeling of Lithium-ion Battery Safety Issues
Internal short circuit and thermal runaway are typical battery safety issues where electrochemistry, thermal, and mechanics are strongly coupled. Interdisciplinary endeavors are in pressing need to address these safety issues, enabling wider application and further improvement for lithium-ion batteries. Physics-based multiscale modeling provides us an underlying mechanistic understanding of the nature of battery safety.
On June 14, 2021, Dr. Jun Xu, Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering & Engineering Science at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte will discuss “Multiphysics and Multiscale Modeling of Lithium-ion Battery Safety Issues.”
Dr. Jun Xu will provide an organic overview of the research work on the multiphysics and multiscale modeling of lithium-ion battery issues from the atomic scale to pack level in the past few years under the sponsorship of various agencies and industrial partners. A global picture will be revealed for future outlooks. This talk aims to provide useful design methodologies and tools in battery safety and inspire insightful discussions within the research community and industry network.
