In this paper the thermal conductivity of epoxy-based composite materials is analysed. Two- and three-phase LewisâNielsen models are proposed for fitting the experimental values of the thermal conductivity of epoxy-based polymer composites. Various inorganic nano- and micro- particles were used, namely aluminium oxide, aluminium nitride, magnesium oxide and silicon dioxide with average particle size between 20 nm and 20 Âµm. It is shown that the fillerâmatrix interface plays a dominant role in the thermal conduction process of the nanocomposites. The two-phase model was proposed as an initial step for describing systems containing 2 constituents, i.e. an epoxy matrix and an inorganic filler. The three-phase model was introduced to specifically address the properties of the interfacial zone between the host polymer and the surface modified nanoparticles.
