Abstract:

This report describes a computational Structure-Battery Design Tool SBDT developed at the Naval Research Laboratory for analyzing the mechanical and electrical performance of multifunctional structure-battery materials configured in prismatic beam geometries. SBDT is implemented in Excel spreadsheet form and is capable of analyzing composite designs with several cross-section geometries including circular-annular rectangular-annular, arbitrary-box, and multilayers. Instructions for using the SBDT and an overview of the calculations performed therein are included below.
