Work is described concerning the design and initial evaluation of Ni-Fe cells in the nickel-cadmium BB616 U size and Ni-Zn cells in the silver-zinc BB462 U size. The effect of parameters of cell construction such as electrode thickness, electrode geometry, separator type, electrolyte concentration, and electrolyte additives on the cell output characteristics are being evaluated in factorially designed experiments. Data analysis is being performed by multiple linear regression techniques via computer. Three experiments are described showing the significant effects of variables studies. These experiments indicate that the minimum energy density goals of 12.5 Whlb for Ni-Fe and 22 Whlb for Ni-Zn at C5 and 80F can be exceeded in these cell sizes. Author
