About EVSL

Electric Vehicle Safety Laboratory (EVSL) focuses on investigating the mechanical characteristics of lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles in order to improve safety. We use experimental and computational methods to study the integrity of lithium-ion batteries under various conditions.
