Abstract
The aim of this comparative study is to heighten and examine mechanical and thermal properties of epoxy based composites using Silicon Carbide (SiC) micro-fillers and titanium oxide (Tio2) micro-fillers. This work deals with preparation of epoxy composites with high content of micro-fillers up to 10 wt%. Experimental mechanical and thermal conductivity tests are evaluated in each specimen and compared with proposed model. This study was mainly focused on spherical particles of Silicon Carbide (SiC) and titanium oxide (Tio2) micro-fillers separately in an effective way to enhance both thermal conductivity and sufficient voltage endurance. A numerical solution using finite element package ANSYS will be used to explain heat transfer process within epoxy matrix filled with micro silicon carbide particles and titanium oxide separately and its effective thermal conductivity values are validated with experimental results and theoretical model correlations.
