Wood can be defined as a composite, porous material as it is effectively made of two different substances. This property is reflective of how differently the wood grows with respect ...Read More
Optimization of sintering parameters for diamond-copper composites in conventional sintering and their thermal conductivity
In this study, sintering parameters in conventional pressure-less sintering are analyzed and the effects of uncoated, Cu(Ni)-coated, and Cr-coated diamond particles are compared for their bulk thermal conductivities. ...Read More
Experimental investigation on equivalent properties of particle reinforced silicone rubber: Improvement of soft tooling process
Soft tooling processes use flexible polymeric materials to manufacture moulds. However, the malleable materials used for soft tooling, such as silicone rubber, have low thermal conductivities and take an extensive ...Read More
Effect of carbon nanotube interfacial geometry on thermal transport in solid–liquid phase change materials
The thermal conductivities of four composite paraffin phase change materials (PCMs) containing embedded multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) with varying dimensions were determined. The goals of this study were to investigate ...
