How to minimize errors in simulations?

In order to minimize the risk of errors in the simulation, we recommend that you check carefully the following points to see if they are correct before pressing „Start simulation“: Geometric models and dimensions Sheet thickness Coating thickness Electrode shape / bulk diameter / tip diameter Electrode tip face curvature Material data Sheet material Coating … Continue reading
