Abstract

This manuscript deals with to improve knowledge of the mechanisms of deposition of graphene on a flat surface. The analysis has been developed on a CPU cooler with experimental results and FEM analysis. The experiments are conducted by mounting the system over a heat source, while the force convection is facilitated by means of a blower. The transient temperature distribution in the CPU cooler is also observed. A model has been performed for modeling the thermal behavior of assembly structures with thin layers. The experimental observations are verified by simulation using a commercial FEM software. It was used a model of orthotropic thermal conductivity with variable values. The goal of the simulation has been to individuate the value of coefficient of thermal conductivity of the layer of graphene. The FEM results show how the graphene was deposited on the surface of CPU cooler and consequently, how this determine the coefficient of thermal conductivity.
