Special Issue "Crash Safety of Lithium-Ion Batteries"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2021).
Interests: lithium-ion batteries; crashworthiness; structural mechanics; occupant protection; finite element modeling
Usage of Lithium-ion batteries in transportation, from electric vehicles to drones, airplanes, and submarines subjects them to dynamic mechanical loading, specially under accident scenarios of an impact, a crash, or shock. Recent studies have focused on analyzing the response of lithium-ion batteries in such conditions. Still there are lots of unknows, as the batteries are multi-material, multi-layer, multi-physics, and multi-scale structures. The present issue of the Energies Journal focuses on various aspects of this issue: from mechanical response of battery cells, modules, and packs under local indentation, shock, and vibration to constitutive mechanical behavior of battery components, including anodes, cathodes and separators. Additional topics for this issue include multi-physics behavior of cells under combined mechanical, electrical, or thermal loading. Contributions are invited from both experimental studies and computational modeling. Considering the broad range of unknowns in the field, studies are sought at both fundamental and applied levels from academic institutions, research organizations and the industry. The present issue of the journal will be of interest of academic users, transportation industry, battery manufacturers, standard developers, rule making authorities, first responders and the public in dealing with crash safety of lithium-ion batteries.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
