Abstract : The response surface determination (RSD) method is proposed for the determination of mean failure points and reliability tolerance limits for a battery design with respect to operational environmental conditions, thermal and dynamic. It provides for the analysis of the battery responses as a function of two or more environmental stresses acting simultaneously, thus affording information on the effects of interactions between forces on the battery performance. Emphasis is placed on providing a maximum of reliability prediction data with small test sample sizes.
