Abstract:

Although the State-of-the-Art hermetically sealed high-rate D cells made by P.R. Mallory and Co. Inc. are sufficiently abuse resistant for many applications, this program was initiated to explore the feasibility of improving the intrinsic abuse resistance of the system even further by chemical andor mechanical means, so that the product may be rendered Safe under all user conditions. The approach that was pursued involved a the identification of the chemical reactions responsible for the pressure buildup andor thermal runaway, b the determination of the sensitivity of these reactions to the various use and abuse variables, and c the development of methods to desensitize these reactions.
