I am trying to measure the thermal conductivity of fiber materials
(mats or individual fibers). Any kind of information on the equipment
or the method used to determine the thermal properties of these
materilas is needed.
Thermal conductivity of composite panels is commonly measured. If you
make a composite panel (resin/fiber) and know the thermal conductivity
of the resin & fiber volume fraction, you can calculate the TC of the
fiber. The fiber orientation (random, long. unidirectional, etc) will
affect the results.
Carbon fiber manufacturers report thermal conductivity for some of
their products, maybe their web sites will provide a test method
You might find what you need in ASTM D2214 procedure. I used it for
many years determining TC of asbestos and non-asbestos composites . . .
and brake lining composites.
Caution - it does NOT do well with high conductivity materials.
