Size Dependent Micro-Stress-Field of Fibers in Eutectic Ceramic Rod
Considering the interaction between fiber-inclusion and strong constraining interphase, forth-phase model is suggested to determine the local stress field distribution of three-phase element in eutectic ceramic rod. On the basis of the volumetric average strain, the effective compliance tensor increment of eutectic ceramic rod is obtained. The remote stress boundary condition of the eutectic ceramic rod is accounted for getting the micro stress field of fibers in eutectic ceramic rod. The results show the micro stress field of the fiber-inclusion in eutectic ceramic rod is associated with the stiffness and the volume fractions of each component in eutectic ceramic rod, the shape of interphase and fiber. The micro stress field has apparent size effect: three direction stresses increase with the diameter of fiber- inclusion.
