Abstract

The high anisotropy in the thermal conductivity of lithium metatitanate, Li2TiO3,
is shown using the classical simulation method of Molecular Dynamics (MD).
The thermal conductivity along the z-direction is markedly lower than that in
x and y. This characteristic could be exploited in the fabrication of breeder
blanket design to favourably adjust the thermal conductivity of Li2TiO3 by ensuring alignment along x or y. This work sets the foundation for investigating
the effect of defects on the thermal conductivity of Li2TiO3, as anticipated to
be formed during the lifetime of a breeder blanket.
