Abstract

In the modeling studies of processing of composites one must determine the changes in thermal conductivity during cure as a function of both temperature and the extent of reaction. An apparatus for measurements of thermal conductivity of neat thermosets and their composites was designed and built in our laboratory. A detailed description of the apparatus is given in this paper. Also included are some initial results obtained with an epoxy resin formulation of the type used in filament‐wound structures.
