When I started reading this story, I assumed I would be reading about thermodynamic modeling of the battery pack. I'm pleasantly surprised to see thow much of the mlecular performance can be modeled by CAE, all the way down to the lithium ion transport. Great story, Beth.

@Naperlou: Good question. My guess is there must be many more CAE packages and capabilities involved, even some homegrown stuff that is specific to the EV battery problem. I think ANSYS sees this area as a big opportunity and is thus staking out some turf and aligning with partners to dig deep on the research.

A hard analysis problem

Beth, this is encouraging news.  The application of CAE to this problem in a very targeted way should help in the development of new and better products.  ANSYS has a lot of experience in related areas.  Are there other CAE vendors involved?
