Introduction and Application
Fiber-reinforced polymers are composite materials made of a polymer matrix reinforced with fibres. The useful attributes (low specific weight, high E-modulus) are being increasingly applied in industrial practices. Through the reinforced fibers its possible to well-directed modifies the properties. Therefore it is important to know the properties especially for high-end applications.
Analysis using LFA
The picture shows the thermal diffusivity and the thermal conductivity in plane are higher than the results normal to the fiber orientation. Consequently this measuring method is a good tool for analysing the material properties and checks the agreement with the favoured application.
