Paper Abstract

A method of analysing the distribution of temperature fields in electrolytic cell is described. The finite volume method, a kind of approximated numerical method, is used to solve a complex and dual-field problem, where the mass transport of the circulating electrolyte is coupled with effects of transport of heat energy. A specific correct distribution of the temperature around the cathode plays a significant role in the electroplating process. This problem is discussed in the paper. Some useful remarks concerning of the heat sources and thermal field in the electrolyte are presented. As an example of the use of these methods, a test model is analysed. The comparative results are obtained for the reduced two-dimensional models.
