Stiffness and Thermal Conductivity of Carbon Nanotube Containing Aluminum
In this paper, carbon nanotube (CNT) containing aluminum composite materials, which have good thermal conductivity, are made by the plasma activated sintering. CNT and vapor-grown carbon fiver (VGCF) as a super multi-wall CNT are used for the composite materials. To clarify the deformation and thermal characteristic of the composite materials, Young’s modulus and thermal conductivity are measured. Finally, the micromechanical discussion is also conducted using Mori-Tanaka model.
