This paper outlines simulation models that represent the quantitative interdependencies between the thermal conductivity and the thermoelastic properties of composites, on the one hand, and their porous structure and matrix properties, as well as the volume fraction of their reinforcing inclusions, on the other hand. As the reinforcing inclusions, randomly-oriented anisotropic single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNT) are taken. The key means for constructing the simulation models are the

With the simulation models presented below, it is possible to estimate the effect the nanocomposite porosity has on the thermoelastic properties and thermal conductivity of nanocomposites.
