Modeling Failure and Short Circuit of Lithium-ion Batteries Under Mechanical Abusive Loads

Dr. Elham Sahraei | Associate Professor and Director of Electric Vehicle Safety Lab (EVSL), Temple University

Lithium-ion batteries are the state of practice energy storage unit for electric vehicles. The application of these batteries in transportation subjects them to higher mechanical loads than what have not been prevalent in customary consumer electronics uses. Overloading of these batteries can cause internal short circuit that may in turn result in excessive and out of control thermal reactions. To protect these batteries in cases of abusive mechanical loads such as car accidents without over designing the structure, proper understanding ... Read More

Performance-Based Seismic Design with Building Information Modelling

Dr. Oh-Sung Kwon I Professor, University of Toronto

The performance-based seismic design (PBSD) allows engineers to design a structure to comply with specific performance requirements, leading to more predictable behavior when the structure is subjected to earthquake excitation. The PBSD requires nonlinear analyses of a structural system that requires a sophisticated numerical model and considerable computing time. Thus, despite the PBSD method’s benefits, the PBSD is not widely adopted in practice except for high-rise buildings or safety-critical structures.

Modeling Failure and Short Circuit of Lithium-ion Batteries Under Mechanical Abusive Loads

Dr. Elham Sahraei | Associate Professor and Director of Electric Vehicle Safety Lab (EVSL), Temple University

Lithium-ion batteries are the state of practice energy storage unit for electric vehicles. The application of these batteries in transportation subjects them to higher mechanical loads than what have not been prevalent in customary consumer electronics uses. Overloading of these batteries can cause internal short circuit that may in turn result in excessive and out of control thermal reactions. To protect these batteries in cases of abusive mechanical loads such as car accidents without over designing the structure, proper understanding ... Read More
