In this study, 4 directional carbon/carbon composites with different preform architectures were manufactured and their thermophysical properties are studied. Carbon fiber preforms are fabricated with fiber bundles using four different spaces. The density of the fabricated preforms were increased through pressure impregnation and carbonizing process. The increased density of the composites was graphitized at $2300^{\circ}C$. Microstructures of these composite were observed under scanning electron microscope. This was to understand the effect the preform architectures has on the thermophysical properties of carbon/carbon composites. Also, the behavior of thermal conduction and heat expansion was investigated and studied in association with the factors of the reinforced direction of fibers and unit cell of preforms.
