Present research deals with multiphysics, pore-scale simulation of Li–O2 battery using multirelaxation time lattice Boltzmann method. A novel technique is utilized to generate an idealized electrode–electrolyte porous media from the known macroscopic variables. Present investigation focuses on the performance degradation of Li–O2 cell due to the blockage of the reaction sites via Li2O2 formation. Present simulations indicate that Li–air and Li–O2 batteries primarily suffer from mass transfer limitations. The study also emphasizes the importance of pore-scale simulations and shows that the morphology of the porous media has a significant impact on the cell performance. While lower porosity provides higher initial current, higher porosity maintains sustainable output.
