Abstract : Emphasis was placed on the fabrication of three 28-volt cell pack assemblies. A detailed discussion of these units is given. Further studies were continued on single-cell characteristics. Chemical analyses were performed on a replicate series of single cells. These cells were analyzed for residual m-dnb and reduction products. Study was undertaken to determine the effect of m-dnb particle size on cell performance. The performance of these cells was evaluated statistically by a variance-analysis method. Studies were conducted on voltage rise time during activation of multiple cells, on the no-load activation stand time of single cells, and on the discharge characteristics of single cells employing Mg-Li anodes. The details of these studies, as well as the pertinent data, are given. (Author)
