Resistive Heating and Battery Modeling

This course is based on the Electromagnetics (EM) solver of LS-DYNA. The
EM module computes the Maxwell equations and is embedded into LS-DYNA
following LSTCs one-code strategy, thereby allowing for an efficiently
coupling to the solid-mechanics and the thermal solver.

The seminar presents the solver’s general principles, a complete keyword
description for setting up simulation models, on the one hand, to
compute inductive and resistive heating problems. On the other hand, the
modelling of batteries is addressed. Thereby exploiting the
Randles-circuit approach to describe the charging and discharging
process as well as the accompanying heat production.
