Investigations on the effect of radiation dependent parameter on effective thermal conductivity of two-phase materials

Two-phase materials are based on the principle of self-assembly of micro and macro-structures and consist of two distinct phases namely continuous and dispersed. In this study, effective thermal conductivity of two-phase materials is estimated based on the modified unit cell collocated parameter model by including secondary radiation effects at high temperatures. Algebraic expressions are derived for touching and non-touching two and three-dimensional spatially periodic in-line geometries based on electric resistance analogy approach. The model is used to predict thermal conductivity of various two-phase materials of wide range of conductivity ratios (? < 1000) and concentration (less than or equal to 1) at various temperatures. The unit cell model is validated with experimental results using a Square Guarded Hot Plate (SGHP) apparatus in the temperature range of 323 - 723 K with temperature difference of 20 K imposed across the specimen. A combined measurement uncertainty of ± 6.75 % is obtained from analysis of measurement data acquired from experiments. Reasonable agreement with experimental data for low thermal conductivity materials is achieved with a maximum deviation of ± 6.82 % at low temperatures and ± 10.68 % at high temperatures. Similarly for high thermal conductivity materials, a deviation of ± 9.82 % and ± 12.68 % is observed for low and high temperatures respectively when compared against published experimental data.
