Multiscale phenomena in electrochemical and porous systems

14th-16th June 2016


Matteo Icardi (Warwick)
Florian Theil (Warwick)


Zeeman building, Room B3.03

The workshop will focus on recent advances in the modelling and simulation of flow, transport and reactions in heterogeneous materials and on mathematical techniques for upscaling and model reduction.
Special emphasis will be put on the applications for lithium-ion batteries and other electrochemical energy storage systems.


  • Lithium-ion, fuel cells and other electrochemical devices
  • Multiscale simulation of charged particles and reaction in porous media
  • Stochastic and periodic homogenization
  • PDF and kinetic methods for upscaling
  • Numerical and analytical approaches for model reduction
