Thermal conductances of aligned structures and thin films with embedded carbon nanotubes
Individual carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have superior thermal conductivity than conventional materials. The applications for CNTs range from heat sinks, thin films to thermal interface materials. However, when CNTs are grouped ...
Hybrid finite elements nanocomposite characterization by stochastic microstructuring
In this thesis the impact of entangled and non-straight fibers in the determination of the effective elastic and thermal properties of polymer nanocomposite (PNC) is addressed. Most of the models in recent studies assume ...
