AB - <jats:p> The tortuosity factor of porous electrode microstructure is a crucial input parameter for numerical models of batteries as it strongly influences the electrode performance. As such, it is very important to have a method to determine this parameter accurately, based on a definition that reflects the design of the cell.</jats:p> <jats:p>Various experimental methods have been developed for either directly measuring or indirectly inferring the tortuosity factor; however, numerical approaches, based on 3D image data, are now gaining interest in the battery community, due to the advances in nanoscale tomographic imaging methods. The standard definition of the tortuosity factor solves the Fick diffusion equation at steady-state, <jats:italic>i.e.,</jats:italic> between two parallel constant-value boundaries. Although this approach has been widely used for porous materials, including both electronic insulators (<jats:italic>e.g.,</jats:italic> a battery separator), and electronic conductors (<jats:italic>e.g.</jats:italic>, battery porous electrodes), it may be the case that the definition needs to be adjusted depending on the scenario being observed.</jats:p> <jats:p>In this study, we intend to give an insight into the appropriate way to determine the tortuosity factor of battery porous electrodes and the impact of various tortuosity determination methods is investigated. An additional module that relies on the symmetric cell method [1] [2] was implemented in the TauFactor software package [3] to compare with the already-implemented diffusion-based method [4]. This symmetric cell method refers to the measurement of the ionic current distribution inside the pores using AC impedance based on a symmetric cell setup. Figure 1 shows the workflow for tortuosity determination applied in this study. The integration of this module in TauFactor might be interesting for tortuosity
