|Abstract||The dielectric response of epoxy based nanocomposites is simulated by developing 3D models in Matlab. Two different sets of nanocomposites are simulated. In the first one, aluminum oxide is used as a filler with an average particle size of 25 nm. The second set consists of epoxy filled with hexagonal boron nitride nanoparticles with an average size of 70 nm. Both sets of nanocomposites exhibit the same trend. At a relatively low filler concentration, the relative permittivity of the nanocomposites is lower compared to both the matrix and filler. However, as filler content increases, the relative permittivity increases as well. At 5 and 10 vol.% filler concentration, epoxy - boron nitride nanocomposites exhibit a relative permittivity which is higher than that of the filler and matrix. Re-organization of the polymer matrix due to the presence of fillers and water uptake are taken into account in the developed models. The model results fit well with the experimental data when two layers are considered around the particles. The first layer is a thin layer with a small thickness and high relative permittivity while the second one extends several nanometers in the polymer matrix. The thickness of the outer layer is dynamic and depends on the filler concentration. The relative permittivity of the outer layer is assumed to be lower than that of the base material.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
