Modelling thermal runaway initiation and propagation for batteries in dwellings to evaluate tenability conditions
The aim of this project is to simulate the initiation and propagation of thermal surge in batteries using a multiphysics model at multiple scales and to compare the simulated results with experimental data. In addition, a short circuit test will be modeled. Finally, the model will be used to simulate conditions in a simple dwelling and assess how quickly critical conditions are reached, e.g. determine conditions where it is safe to evacuate without excessive concentrations of irritant gases.
