Effect of the chain on thermal conductivity and thermal boundary conductance of long chain n-alkanes using molecular dynamics and transient plane source techniques

This Master's Thesis researched thermal transport at the nanoscale level in n-alkanes, and specifically focused on the effect of length of long chain n-alkane molecules on the thermal conductivity. A combination of transient measurements using the TPS method and molecular dynamics simulations were used in this research. The TPS method measured the thermal conductivity of three solid n-alkanes. Overall, the author concluded that there was an increase in thermal conductivity ...
