Theoretical accuracy of anisotropic thermal conductivity determined by transient plane source method

This article studied the potential thermal conductivity deviation of anisotropic materials using a numerical simulation. Anisotropic thermal conductivity may experience deviation due to its noncompliance of the theoretical assumption of the transient plane source (TPS) method. The TPS method was used to measure the in-plane ...

Predictions of effective thermal conductivities for three-dimensional four-directional braided composites using the lattice Boltzmann method

The authors present a multiple-relaxation-time lattice Boltzmann model with an off-diagonal collision matrix for use in predicting the thermal conductivity of anisotropic heterogeneous materials with anisotropic components. Model accuracy was first confirmed through comparison with previous simulation results. In this paper the model was applied ...

Effective structure of aerogels and decomposed contributions of its thermal conductivity

Aerogels are nano-porous materials with impressive thermal insulation properties. This study uses a new theoretical model to predict the effective thermal conductivity of aerogels based on gas and solid conduction, as well as thermal radiation. A thermal constant analyzer measured the influence of gas pressure, ...
