Characterization of the structure, acoustic property, thermal conductivity, and mechanical property of highly expanded open-cell polycarbonate foams 

This study was conducted to determine if highly expanded open cell polycarbonate foams (PC) could be used as thermal insulation among other characteristics of the foam. This was accomplished through testing the PC foam with the Transient Plane Source (TPS) method. Multiple relative densities of foam were tested, and it was found that the higher the relative density the higher the thermal conductivity, and vice versa. The lower the relative ...

Heat transfer in microcellular polystyrene/multi-walled carbon nanotube nanocomposite foams

Polystyrene/multi-walled carbon nanotube (PS/MWCNT) nanocomposite foams were prepared in order to determine if these foams exhibited a reduced thermal conductivity in comparison to pristine polystyrene foam. The thermal conductivity of foams can be broken down into three modes of conduction: gas conductivity, solid conductivity, and radiative conductivity. The PS/MWCNT foams had decreased gas and radiative conductivities in comparison to the pristine PS foam; however, the solid conductivity ...
