Current density distribution is an important consideration
for those involved in designing electrochemical systems
and electroplating systems in particular. Although it
is important, the common practice in industry is to use
trial and error to determine designs that optimize current
density distributions in electroplating. The purpose of this
paper is to illustrate the use of the finite element method
(FEM) to predict three-dimensional current density distributions.
