Abstract
The structural battery composite is an innovative solution for a 
light-weight storage of electric energy. It is multifunctional since it 
carries mechanical loads and stores electric energy simultaneously. Such 
multifunctional materials will become important for e.g. the 
electrification of vehicles since large weight-reductions can be gained. 
This innovation will contribute greatly to realizing the vision of a 
carbon-neutral circular economy. Due to the infancy of this technology, 
the structural batteries still need to be developed further.

The main purpose of the project is to model and simulate the diffusive 
transport of lithium ions through the structural battery electrolyte 
(SBE) between the structural battery electrodes in a laminar setup, and 
to simulate the SBE's mechanical behaviour. The SBE is a microporous 
polymer matrix filled with a liquid electrolyte. By generating an 
artificial SBE microstructure and performing some virtual material 
testing on it, it will become possible to evaluate the effective 
multifunctional performance of the SBE for varying pore sizes.
