Scaling laws and mesoscopic modeling of thermal conductivity in carbon nanotube materials.

Abstract

The scaling laws describing the thermal conductivity in random networks of straight conducting nanofibers are derived analytically and verified in numerical simulations. The applicability of the scaling laws to more complex structures of interconnected networks of bundles in carbon nanotube (CNT) films and mats is investigated in mesoscopic simulations. The… (More)
