How to predict the thermal conductivity and specific heat using 3D FEA (abaqus/ansys) based RVE analysis?

    Dear sir,

     I need to calculate the thermal properties such as thermal conductivity k1, k2 ,k3 and specific heat using 3D FEA based RVE analysis. Can anyone suggest how to predict these properties is it possible to predict using 3D FEA based RVE analysis in Abaqus/Ansys if so please let me know. Let us assume initially  we have thermal conductivity k1, k2 ,k3 and specific heat properties of  fiber and matrix

    Yes, you can. You just need to apply the correct boundary condition in carrying out the heat conduction analysis.
