Chapter 1. The Current Distribution in Electrochemical Systems

Abstract
An electrochemical system consists in general of ionic solutions bounded by electrodes, membranes and insulators (fig. 1.1). At the electrodes electrochemical reactions take place. The flow of electrons in the outer circuit is converted into a flow of ions in the electrolyte.
Johan Deconinck

Chapter 2. Solution of the Potential Model

Abstract
To find primary current distributions, a lot of classical analytical tools are available (superposition, con- formal mapping, method of images, …) [15]. Once the geometry is too complex or when non-linear overpotentials are considered, approximate methods must be used.
Johan Deconinck

Chapter 3. The Boundary Element Method to Solve Current Distributions

Abstract
Much effort has been made to obtain a flexible general usable program. For that purpose a powerful data generator and postprocessor were developed.
Johan Deconinck

Chapter 4. Electrode Shape Change

Abstract
In the previous chapter we discussed the possibility to calculate quickly current distributions. The simulation of electrode shape change can now be tackled.
Johan Deconinck

Chapter 5. General Conclusion

Abstract
In this work we applied the boundary element method for the solution of many current distribution problems in electrochemical systems, including electrode shape change simulations.
