Join senior strategic technical specialist Ian Kerman for this webinar about Dassault Systèmes’ complete workflow for better and safer Li-ion batteries

Lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries power modern society, providing the electricity for everything from cardiac pacemakers to electric cars. However, there are still significant design challenges to address, such as improving battery safety and extending its lifetime. The complex interplay of physics, chemistry and engineering required to successfully integrate a battery in a working system requires an understanding of how they operate at various time and length scales. 

During this webinar, senior strategic technical specialist Ian Kerman showcases the modelling and simulation capabilities found across Dassault Systèmes to design better, safer and more efficient Li-ion batteries. Learn how Dassault Systèmes’ end-to-end workflow can be utilized in various ways

By the end of this webinar you will have a deeper understanding of how:

  • Atomistic modelling can tie battery component performance to chemical structure
  • Collaboration across business units streamlines battery R&D
  • Unifying in silico atomistic studies with systemic battery models can predict the performance of new battery materials and cell design
