Effect of Fibre Anisotropy on Composite Thermal Conductivity

Article Preview

This paper examines the effect of anisotropy on the effective composite thermal conductivity, Kc, of metal matrix composites containing carbon-based inclusions. Added effects of thermal interface conductance, hbd, and size have also been considered. It has been found that at high hbd values, the effective thermal conductivity of the composite is limited by inclusion anisotropy. At lower hbd values and smaller inclusion sizes, this effect is greatly diminished due to the more dominant effect of limited heat flow across the interface.
