FLUENT was used to analyze how the shapes of buckypaper and the thermal conductivity of the polymer matrix affects the temperature distribution of composites reinforced by the flat, sinusoidal and pulse bending buckypaper when the composite materials is heated. The larger the thermal conductivity of the polymer is, the lower the maximum and average temperature are. As the minimum temperature is increased, the distribution of the temperature is more uniform. Meanwhile, the increased thermal conductivity of the polymer matrix leads to more uniform temperature distribution and increased lowest temperature. The obtained temperature distribution maps shows that high temperature region appear in the vicinity of the buckypaper.
