The paper contains theoretical and experimental thermal diffusivity data on anisotropic carbon and glass fiber reinforced composite laminates up to 5 mm thick. The effectiveness of the theory is evaluated by using a 3D numerical model. Both spot-mask and slit-mask techniques for determining lateral thermal diffusivity components are analyzed.
