SwRI is pleased to present a webinar showcasing a systematic process to model lithium-ion battery failure due to mechanical abuse. As the automotive industry electrifies a larger percentage of vehicles, the safety aspects of energy storage in lithium-ion batteries are increasingly important. SwRI has developed a structural model capable of predicting mechanically induced internal short-circuits in lithium-ion batteries. This webinar will discuss the destructive tests used to develop the models along with the process of building the model to represent single battery cells, mid-sized battery modules, and large battery packs.
