Anisotropic Deformation Effect on the Fracture of Core Components Made of Two-Dimensional C/C Composite
The carbon fiber reinforced carbon-carbon composite (C/C composite) is one of the candidates due to its excellent thermal stability as well as high strength. A two-dimensional C/C composite has great anisotropy in those properties in with- and across- fiber directions. It is, therefore, important to consider the anisotropy for the stress evaluation and for the fracture probability of the components. In the present study, FEM analyses on deformation and stress of the component were carried out taking account of the anisotropy. In addition, the fracture probability of the components was evaluated by the statistical fracture theory. It was found that anisotropy affect the thermal stress and the risk of rupture.
