It is now possible to calculate coalescence using GeoDict! Users can simulate the coalescence of small droplets on the scale of the filter medium. With this new feature, users can model and simulate a variety of new applications of filtration processes such as oil/water separators, droplet separators, and condensers.
In the following example, a nonwoven is simulated with GeoDict using a µCT scan and a digital twin is created. This digital twin can be used to calculate a wide range of mechanical and physical properties.
In GeoDict, material properties such as density, viscosity, conductivity and tortuosity are provided in a material database. Advanced properties are also available for use in mechanical and electrochemical simulations.
We are very excited that GeoDict 2023 contains a new solver in ElastoDict. In FlowDict, we use our very fast and efficient LIR solver which is now also coming to ElastoDict. In a first step, we introduce the possibility to use our self-developed LIR solver to compute the effective stiffness of structures in GeoDict.

The micro-and nanostructure of a Lithium-ion battery electrode greatly influences its properties. Battery optimization must begin by understanding the electrode structure at these scales. An essential piece in this puzzle are insights about the distribution of the carbon-black and binder domain (CBD) in cathodes and of the binder domain in anodes.
