Abstract

The manufacturing process of GnP/polymer nanocomposites exhibits important challenges regarding the material quality and how to reduce or eliminate fabrication induced defects. In this work, the effect of air cavities (voids) on the thermal response of nanocomposites is studied by means of finite element analysis on a multi-scale scheme. The proposed model is validated with experimental data by performing generic and full-field comparisons.
