The authors have presented a study on the effect of interface thermal resistance on thermal conductivity in carbon nanofiber (CNF) composites. Upon measuring the thermal conductivities of nanocomposites with varying ...Read More
Temperature dependent ultrasonic and thermo-physical properties of polyaniline nanofibers reinforced epoxy composites
Nanocomposites of polyaniline nanofibers reinforced in epoxy were prepared and their ultrasonic velocities, ultrasonic attenuations, and thermal conductivities were measured over a temperature range of 298-373 K. It was found ...

Temperature-dependent thermal properties of a paraffin phase change material embedded with herringbone style graphite nanofibers
The authors outline a method of enhancing the thermal properties of a paraffin phase change material through the addition of herringbone-style graphite nanofibers (HGNFs). It was found that the solid-phase ...
