Abstract
This research addresses the thermal transport in carbon nanofiber (CNF)/epoxy composites via finite element modeling. The effects of nanofiber orientation on thermal transport are investigated through Fourier’s Law of heat conduction and through simulation of a high magnitude, short heat pulse. The effect of interface thermal resistance on the effective composite thermal conductivity is also quantified. In addition, a simplified lightning strike simulation is modeled in order to analyze the effect of interfacial thermal resistance on composite behavior when subjected to multiple short heat pulses.
