Abstract: Samples of binary reinforced composites were created by mixing varying fractions of palm fiber (20, 30, 40, and 50 weight %) in a phenoformaldehyde (PF) matrix. The thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity were measured using Transient Plane Source equipment. The team discovered that the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of the composites decreased as the amount of palm fiber increased.
