Thermo-physical properties of anisotropic materials – A comparison between experiments and numerical calculations

The potential of the transient plane source (TPS) technique for the testing of thermo-physical properties of hydrogen storage materials is evaluated. To do this, stacks of interleaved samples of stainless steel 316L, Teflon, and Lexan were tested for thermal conductivity using the anisotropic module in the TPS software. It was determined that the axial and radial thermal conductivities were as expected with the exception of the presence of some deviation ...


Effect of filler arrangement and networking of hexagonal boron nitride on the conductivity of new thermal management polymeric composites

Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) was used as filler in varying concentrations to form composite polymers with polyactic acid, polyamide, and polyphenylene sulfide. The objective of this work was to produce a composite polymer with a high thermal conductivity for use as electronics packaging. It was determined that although thermal conductivity increased with increasing filler content, it was not necessarily due to the increased number of filler particles present, but rather ...

Thermal Resistance Wearing Course Development and Performance

In an effort to lessen the Urban Heat Island effect, aggregate in road wearing course was replaced in varying amounts with sintered clay or recycled ceramic. The physical and thermal properties of these new mixtures were then examined to determine if they showed improvements over traditional wearing course. It was found that the replacement of aggregate with sintered clay decreased the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity. A similar result was ...

Effects of MWNTs on phase change enthalpy and thermal conductivity of a solid-liquid organic PCM

In this paper, researchers investigated the effects of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs), on the thermal conductivity and phase change enthalpy of palmitic acid (PA), a solid to liquid phase change material. The research concluded that as the concentration of MWNTs is increased, the thermal conductivity of the composite increases, compared to that of PA alone. Also in this study, researchers investigated the effects of various MWNTs surface modifications, on the ...
