Thermal degradation kinetics of nanocomposite materials

Polymers are lightweight material that can help the military achieve weight-savings on weapons systems and components. However, without a filler material, polymers have low thermal conductivity unsuitable for many military applications. By adding filler, such as carbon nanotubes or montmorillonite clay, the thermal conductivity can be improved. Dr. …
