In a recent article, Faroughi and Huber [J. Appl. Phys. 117, 055104 (2015)] propose two theoretical
models to compute the effective thermal conductivity of metal and dielectric spherical particle reinforced composites with interfacial thermal resistance. The models are based on the differential effective medium (DEM) theory. The authors have failed to cite and discuss the paper of Pal [Mater. Sci. Eng., A 498, 135–141 (2008)] where similar models have been derived using the same approach (DEM theory). Furthermore, the models proposed by Faroughi and Huber are seriously flawed in that the “excluded volume effect” is taken into account two times, instead of once, in their derivations. Last but not least, there are typos in their models.
