The paper shows the applicability of computer aided modeling to some sub-problems of electrochemical technology. The direct modeling of electrolytic coating technology involves solution of current distribution in a solvent, electrochemical dissolution, and shape of the electrodes. The presented method is applied to analyze distribution of a fluid stream, temperature distribution and concentration of ions in the electroplating cell. Two different methods of control of solution circulation are analyzed. Classification of the properties of these methods enables to qualify the extension of usability each of them in the electroplating technology. The spatial distribution of the velocity of electrolyte is discussed. Essential advantages of the presented method are its flexibility, and applicability to a wide range of electrolytic coating processes.
