FEM simulation of the thermal runaway of Li-ion batteries

Department: Electrics/Electronics & Software

Diplomarbeit Ref.Nr. E_050

Available tasks:

In the context of ongoing activities to develop a multi-physics simulation framework for spatially resolved simulation of the thermal-runaway behavior (battery fire) of automotive battery systems

  • Optimization of already developed numerical methods for the calculation of the kinetics of  chemical degradation reactions causing the thermal runway
  • Numerical fitting of the model parameters from experimental data
  • Creation and meshing of simplified 3D models of a large scale automotive Li-ion battery system
  • Simulation and assessment of different safety relevant misuse cases

What we expect from you:

  • Student of related technical field
  • Interest in numerical simulation and modeling
  • Experience in computer programming
  • Don’t shy away from learning some basic chemistry of Li-Ion battery technology
  • Independent execution of sub-tasks of the project

What we offer:

  • Insights into the international research concerning e-mobility
  • Collaboration with a committed, young and dynamic team
  • Opportunity to use the research results for a diploma thesis
  • Financial remuneration
