Fire Safety of Lithium-ion Batteries

Lithium-ion batteries are currently the batteries of choice for portable consumer electronic devices including cell phones, tablets, laptop computers, digital cameras, power tools, and toys.


This project aims to investigate the fundamental behaviors and root-causes of LIB by fires by developing novel diagnostics techniques to monitor LIB electrochemical conditions. Also, develop end-user predictive model for LIB fire that fully couples the electrochemical and flame propagation behaviors, as well as an innovative monitoring and fire protection system to reduce the fire risks of LIB systems.
