Thermal properties of pineapple leaf fiber reinforced composites

Varying weight percentages of pineapple leaf fiber were added to phenolformaldehyde (PF) in order to generate a composite material. Using the transient plane source (TPS) technique, the thermal conductivities of the varying weight percentage composites were studied. It was found that increasing weight % pineapple leaf fiber resulted in decreasing thermal conductivity and diffusivity of the composites. The experimental results are compared to results produced by two models (the Rayleigh-Maxwell and ...

Temperature dependence of effective thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of treated and untreated polymer composites

The thermal properties of a series of treated and untreated oil palm fiber-reinforced composites were tested at room temperature and atmospheric pressure using the TPS method. Treatment of the composites with varying methods resulted in increases in thermal conductivity, porosity and pore sizes depending on the treatment method used. The dependence of thermal conductivity on temperature was also studied and it was found that the maximum thermal conductivity was at ...
