Abstract:

The report covers the research and development activities which have been directed towards the design of a 12-volt, vented, nickel-cadmium battery housed in a reinforced fiberglass container and capable of surviving four-foot, free fall drops. Essentially, the structural system consists of a steel inner box which clamps a bank of 10 cells to make a rigid assembly. This assembly, in turn, is hardmounted within a reinforced fiberglass outer box to cause its walls to be preloaded in tension. This preload tends to reduce the magnitude of compressive loads induced by impact. Author
