Abstract:

The work accomplished in this SBIR project demonstrated that the addition of boron nitride BN powder to a composite laminate significantly increases the through the thickness thermal conductivity Kz of a composite laminate. The importance of this work is that the improved Kz results in significantly lower operating temperatures for thermal applications such as composite thermal planes and space based radiators.
