Abstract—As composites are made up of two different materials having different properties therefore their response to heat transfer will also be different. Due to different materials, a composite have different conductance, cooling rate, strength values for each material which effects rate of heat transfer in different environmental and operating conditions. Due to which heat transfer rate will be different in matrix and in fiber which effects overall heat transfer rate through the composite. In addition, by using FEM analysis it has been concluded that if the fibers are located at different positions in composite they can also affect the heat transfer rate. This paper deals with study of different parameters that affect the heat transfer through FRC
Index Terms—FRC (fiber reinforced composites), FEM analysis, Heat transfer, Microstructural topography.
