Abstract:

The objective of the research task is to show that thermal resistances or conductivities of cells or batteries can be predicted on the basis of knowing the sizes, arrangements, and the composition of the cell or battery components, and their thermal conductivities. The thermal anisotropy of 20-ampere-hour nickel-cadmium aerospace cells, as given by the ratio of conductivities in the parallel and perpendicular directions, varies according to cell type, and values in the range 1.76 through 2.63 were obtained.
