Ratio of effective thermal conductivity of 1 wt. % MWNT/epoxy nanocomposites over that of pure polymer ( / ) from experiments (redcircles, Guo ) and from simulations (blue diamond) as a function of thermal boundary resistance or Kapitza resistance (). The error bar was calculated based on 5 different runs for each case. The measured value of the thermal conductivity was  = 0.22 W/mK.
