Electrochemical micromachining (EMM) appears to be a promising technique, since in many areas of application, it offers several special advantages that include higher machining rate, better precision and control, and a wider range of materials that can be machined. Electrochemical machining for a hole is a complex phenomenon because it is involving two phase fluid dynamics, unsteady state heat transfer, electric field distribution, mass transfer, electrochemistry etc. between moving boundaries. Therefore Anode (work) shape prediction models are complicated. This paper is reviewed different model for analysis problem ie anode shape prediction. With finite element method, the anodic dissolution process is predicted.
