Residual Stresses in Laminar Functionally Graded Ceramic Materials


Article Preview

A simple analytical model of residual stresses far from edges in symmetrical planar functionally graded material (FGM) is presented. The model is based on elastic plate theory and neglects the influence of edges and free surfaces. The results are compared to analytical model of laminar ceramics and to finite element model of FGM. The influence of various geometrical and material parameters on the internal stress state is discussed.
