Mesoscopic electrically induced ionic convection in the electrolyte surrounding the anode is modelled. Dissipative particle dynamics approach is used for the modelling. Simulation shows that the relation between forming voltage and convection cell size is likely nonlinear. Interactions between this nonlinearity and modes in the oxide layer can be the cause of irregularities in the resulting structures.
