Abstract:

Because heat transfer in sealed spacecraft cells is primarily by conduction, thermal resistance analog models of four types of nominal 20 amp-hr nickel-cadmium cells of different manufacture were used to predict the cell thermal properties as a function of the materials and types of construction. Experiments were performed to verify the predictions and to obtain overall cell conductivities in directions parallel with, and perpendicular to, the plane of the plates. Studies were also made of the feasibility of measuring the conductivity of individual cell components. Author
