  author={Robert Spotnitz and Richard Partain Muller},
57 The last decade has seen tremendous progress in the capability to simulate and so improve the abuse tolerance of lithium-ion batteries. This progress has been driven by both the need to improve the safety of small cells used in consumer electronics and the need to design large packs used in automotive applications. The energy density of small lithium-ion cells, for example 18650 (18 mm dia., 65 mm tall), used in consumer electronics has increased steadily since their commercial introduction… CONTINUE READING
