Direct measurement of through-plane thermal conductivity and contact resistance in fuel cell materials

The through-plane thermal conductivity of many components of a fuel cell, dry Nafion®, various diffusion medias and catalyst layers are studied. The thermal contact resistance between the diffusion media and a metal plate with respect to temperature and pressure was also determined. The measurements were ...

Influences of template concentration and epoxy functionality on porous epoxy systems: Characteristics of thermal stability, optical, dielectric, and mechanical properties

Porous epoxy thermosets were prepared using poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) as a template. The two epoxies that were used to make the porous thermosets were diglycidylether bisphenol-A (DGEBA), and triphenylolmethane triglycidyl ether (TGTPM). Trimethylolpropane tris(poly(propylene glycol)), amine terminated)ether (T-403) was used as ...

Structure and physical properties of EVA/starch precursor materials for foaming applications

Synthetic polymers in starch-based polymer formulations improve the thermal and mechanical properties of the compounds. The purpose of this study was to develop and analyze foams containing ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) and varying concentrations of corn starch. A Thermal Constants Analyser measured the thermal conductivity of ...

Applications of some thermo-analytical techniques to glasses and polymers

The authors highlight different methods of studying the purity, composition, and structural changes of polymeric and glass materials. These methods include the use of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and the transient plane source (TPS) technique. The quality of the TPS Technique is outlined and the ...
