This thesis presents a method to predict electrostatic fields, potentials, and currents in regions containing piecewise-homogeneous electrolytes. Additionally, an efficient electric field calculation is presented. A boundary integral equation is formulated for the boundary potentials and currents and is discretized using the Locally Corrected Nyström method. Solution convergence with respect to the mesh discretization and basis order is investigated. The techniques are validated through analysis of problems with either analytic solutions, with published data, or with other solution methods.
