Abstract:

This report covers the research and development activities which have been directed towards the design of a 24-volts, vented, nickel-cadmium battery housed in a reinforced fiberglas container and capable of surviving four-foot free fall drops. Essentially, the structural system consists of a steel inner box which clamps two banks of 10 cells each to make a rigid assembly. This assembly, in turn, is hard-mounted within a reinforced fiberglas 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
