Thermal diffusivities for a T300/5208 graphite/epoxy system were calculated from thermal conductivity, heat capacity, and density. These thermal diffusivity data were then used along with an infinite plate model having the fibers oriented in the direction perpendicular to the heat flow to predict temperature profiles during the curing process.
