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 ...

Synergetic effect of thermal conductive properties of epoxy composites containing functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotubes and aluminum nitride

This study looked at the use of two different fillers to improve the thermal properties of an epoxy resin. The two fillers were multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and aluminum nitride (AlN). Through the use of poly(glycidyl methacrylate) (PGMA) and a zirconate coupling agent the MWCNTs and AlN particles respectively were added to the epoxy resin. Through the use of 1 vol.% MWCNT and 25 vol.% AlN the researchers were able to ...

Thermal conductivity models for carbon/liquid crystal polymer composites

Various polyacrylonitrile carbon fillers (Ketjenblack carbon black, Thermocarb synthetic graphite, Fortafil 243 carbon fiber, and Panex 30 carbon fiber) were added to a thermoplastic matrix in the hopes of generating a thermally conductive resin that could be used as bipolar plates in fuel cells. These composites were then tested for through-plane thermal conductivity using the Nielsen model which was a function of the single filler volume fraction. The authors also developed a ...

Study on thermal conductive BN/novolac resin composites

Different concentrations of boron nitride (BN) were added to novolac resin in order to create a composite and modify the thermal conductivity which increased with increasing BN concentration. An instrument was used for the thermal conductivity measurements. Different size BN particles were also explored. The Maxwell-Eucken model was used to predict values which aligned well with experimental results....

Three Dimensional Homogeneity Characterization in Composite Materials

The turn of the evolution in plastics came with the development of fiber reinforcements. With the introduction of reinforcement fibers to a base resin, the mechanical properties are improved drastically, allowing for the product to be implemented in a wide range of applications. These materials were discovered to have half the weight of their metal counterparts and a tensile strength that is more than doubled. Fibers within the system are ...
