Paper Title:
Thermomechanical Properties of Functionally Graded Al-SiCp Composites
  Abstract

A theoretical model is applied to the analysis of thermomechanical properties of Al-SiCp FGMs in this study. Functionally graded Al-SiCp composites (Al-SiCp FGMs) consisted with 10 layers gradually changing volume fractions of Al and SiCp were fabricated using the pressureless infiltration technique. Al-SiCp FGMs plates of total thickness of 3mm, 5mm and 7mm with fairly uniform distribution and compositional gradient of SiCp reinforcement in the Al matrix throughout the thickness was successfully fabricated. The curvature of Al-SiCp FGM plates was measured to check the internal stress distribution predicted via a theoretical model for the analysis of thermomechanical deformation. The evolution of curvature and also internal stresses in response to temperature variations could be predicted for the different combinations of geometric thickness of FGM plates. Theoretical prediction of thermally induced stress distribution makes it possible to design FGM structures without any critical failure during the usage of them.
