Abstract
A COMPUTER IMPLEMENTED MODEL FOR SIMULATING ELECTROLYTIC CELLS WILL BE DEVELOPED. THE MODEL WILL PROVIDE THE TOTAL CURRENT AND ITS DISTRIBUTION IN THE CELL, THE DEPOSIT THICKNESS ALONG THE ELECTRODE, THE OVERPOTENTIAL COMPONENTS,THE OVERALL CELL RESISTANCE AND THE POWER DISSIPATION AS FUNCTION OF THE SYSTEM PARAMETERS. THE LATTER INCLUDES THE APPLIED CELL POTENTIAL OR THE TOTAL CURRENT, THE ELECTRODE KINETICS, THE ELECTROLYTE COMPOSITION AND ITS CIRCULATION RATE, AND THE CELL CONFIGURATION. ALTHOUGH THE PROGRAM WILL BE APPLICABLE TO ELECTROCHEMICAL CELLS IN GENERAL, ELECTROWINNING AND ELECTRO-REFINING CELLS WILL BE SPECIFICALLY CONSIDERED.
