Effect of Residual Stress on the Mechanical Capacity of Layered Composite


Article Preview

For enhanced mechanical properties of ceramics for structural application, a great deal of attention has concentrated on preparation of layered composites. In this study, numerical simulation technique, which is applicable for the evaluation of mechanical performance for layered composite material, was developed. A generalized material constitutive equation coupled with material damage model based on the continuum damage mechanics approach was proposed and has been implemented to an in-house type finite element analysis code. The material behaviors for each component of layered composites can be simulated by the pre-defined material model on the simulation. A series of finite element analyses was carried out in order to elucidate the effect of fabrication related residual stress on the structural capacity of the layered composites.
