Abstract:

This report presents results of measurements in the 20-100 deg C temperature range of the thermal conductivities Kt of epoxies, polyurethanes, and hydrocarbons of interest to the Army. The study explores the effects of different curing agents, water absorption, glass transition temperature, and toughening. The study also explores E- and S2-glass composites of the epoxies, including effects of volume fraction of glass and fabric style. The experimental results are compared to modeled results for Kt in composites.
