Effect of the interface on the overall thermal conductivity of multi-phase composites
Multi-phase particle reinforced heat conducting composites are considered. We treat the case when there is an interfacial thermal barrier between phases. We indicate how the particle size distribution and particle geometry influences the overall properties of the suspension. These results apply immediately to the mathematically analogous case of DC electrical conductivity in the presence of electrical contact resistance between phases.
