    Abstract

    By applying the fundamental definition of thermal conductivity to a unit cell of an orthogonal fiber-reinforced composite material in a one-dimensional heat flow, one can readily deduce simple mathematical expressions for the equivalent thermal conductivity for the composite material. Such expressions can serve as useful guides for materials development.
