Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The paper discusses the calculation of the effective thermal and diffusion properties of metal matrix composites containing diamond particles. The effective properties are calculated using Maxwell homogenization scheme. We also establish cross-property connection between overall thermal conductivity and diffusion coefficient and illustrate it on example of Al\diamond composites.
