The challenges in material science is our ability to evaluate heat flow and monitor temperature with time. Design of synthetic man-made materials are hindered by our inability to control transition temperatures for thermally functional materials. The research proposal will advance an absorbing laminate structure by hydrodynamics into a multifunction nanoscale material. To advance a nanoscale material subjected to high temperature through real time reactive thermal transfer to regulate an epoxy matrix by nanoscale thermal conductance. Through precise hydrodynamic control of a microfluidic based platform for monitoring temperature rise to time. The research will advance the controlled processing of functional thin-film chip material for desired thermal functionality. To demonstrated thermal conductance management at the interface between materials for heat seeking targeting. Through analysis of volumetric flow proportional to resistance of determinate nano channel geometry. By systematic resistance networking to achieve precise hydrodynamic manipulation of a fluid entering a network, through a network and out of the network embedded within a synthetic polymer device. In avoidance of non-linear and turbulence effects within microfluidic based platform. To achieve unified distribution of nano flows across a planar device in non- fixed sectional geometry microchannels for fluidic uniform straight-line motion. Regulation of flow fraction networks will advance thermal conductance transfer into a fluid. By nanoscale heat flow interface between the two materials polymer and the fluid. Through active heat transport flow as a viscosity function of temperature For unified heat transport by proportionally carrying larger heat absorption capacity without creating shortcut pathways through the network. This function to derive smooth flow under parabolic flow will establish heat transport is possible to act as a switch as measured though flow rate changes. Changes in flow rate will influence heat flow reactions at the interface of materials to control the flow of conductance on or off. The proposal could advance established practice into new materials (carbon/epoxy, PEEK) for structural nanoscale composite as thermal management system.
