Experimental investigations on temperature-dependent thermo-physical and mechanical properties of pultruded GFRP composites

The analysis of a pultruded E-glass reinforced polyester (GFRP) composite is performed by TGA, DSC and DMA methods. The data obtained from these analysis methods agreed well with theoretical models applied to the GFRP. The specific heat capacity of the composite was found to decrease over heating and the decomposition process....

Thermal conductivity epoxy resin composites filled with boron nitride

The point of this research paper was to modify the thermal and mechanical properties of epoxy resin (EP) via the addition of boron nitride (BN) by a silane coupling agent (KH550). The use of 60 wt.% BN resulted in a thermal conductivity that was 5 times higher than the conductivity of the unmodified epoxy resin....

Thermal conductivity of cement composites containing rubber waste particles: Experimental study and modelling

The authors of this article look to use shredded waste tires as a component of a cement composite in order to reuse the discarded material as well as improve the thermal properties of the composite. The TPS method was used in order to determine thermal conductivities of the dry components of the composite, and the auto-coherent homogenisation model was used to determine the thermal conductivity of the rubber/cement/air ...

Preparation and characterization of thermally conductive polystyrene/carbon nanotubes composites

Researchers in this study aimed to develop polymer composites with high thermal conductivity, using polystyrene (PS) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs). These composites were prepared by ultrasonic radiation, through a simple-solution-evaporation method. Poly(styrene-co-maleic anhydride) (PSMA), with a benzene group and experiencing a strong affinity for PS was used as a base, to allow the MWNTs to be dispersed within the composite (MWNT-g-SMA). Results determined that the addition of MWNTs ...

Thermo-physical, thermal degradation, and flexural properties of betel nut husk fiber reinforced vinyl ester composites

Presently, society has become infatuated with limiting their carbon-foot print. As this progresses, scientists must find alternative means for manufactured composites: natural composites. One way this has been put forth is the addition of betel nut husk (BNH) as a reinforcing material in vinyl ester (VE) matrices (polymer composites). Thermophysical tests were conducted, using a TPS sensor, to determine the thermal properties of the composites. Mechanical and thermal degradation tests ...
