Abstract:

The investigative work carried forward in the last quarter as well as that of the entire contract is summarized. The purpose remained that of yielding an improved Ni-Cd cell. Four experiments were completed in this quarter a Cycle Life Performance, b Self-Disch., c Chg. Accept., and d Overchg. Accept. Experiment A followed the factorial design for main effects 27 cells as delineated in PR 5. They were analyzed by the Analysis of Variance and yielded these significant effects neg. linear trend with increasing KOH conc. type separator type neg. 80 LiOH as additive. Experiment B followed the factorial design for main effects 16 cells as delineated in PR 7. They were analyzed by the t test and by the half-normal plot. Significant effects were given. Author
