Thermal Conductivity Predictions of Composites Containing Percolated Networks of Uniform Cylindrical Inclusions

A theoretical approach is introduced that enables the prediction of the effective thermal conductivity of a composite containing a thermally insulating matrix and percolated networks of highly-conducting cylindrical inclusions. This theory is applicable for all inclusion sizes but is applied here fo...
