Abstract

A three-dimensional microstructure of green and pressed tapes cast with graphite particles of non-spherical shape were examined quantitatively on the basis of the distribution of void sizes among the packed particles. The distributions measured over the cross-sections of the tape in three directions were expressed by the theoretical ones deduced for non-spherical particles. Particle shape was characterized by shape indices defined by Fourier analysis of particle outlines measured over the corresponding cross-sections of the green tape. The relationships were totally established between the limiting packing density, characterizing the void size distribution at the same section voidage, and the shape index of particle over the section. As a result, the normalized median void diameter as well as the limiting packing density of the pressed tape was found to increase with the particle shape index, corresponding to wider void size distribution. Therefore, based on developed correlations, the optimization of packing microstructure of the cast tape can be expected to result in high performance battery by using shape-modified graphite particles.
