Calculation of Thermal Stresses in Mo-Ti FGM with a Continuous Change of Composition
In the present paper, a kind of Mo-Ti system functionally graded material with a continuous change of composition was formed via particle settling method at first, and then it was desified by hot-press under 1473K-30MPa-1h. Finally, by using an axisymmetric finite element method, the fabricated thermal stresses in a disk-shaped Mo-Ti FGM were calculated. The results showed that the thermal stresses changed continuously with the smooth variation of graded composition. The residual tensile stresses in the Mo-Ti FGM with a continuously changed composition were located in the medial region of graded layer and the radial compressive stresses distributed in the Mo- and Ti-rich sides. The calculated maximum residual tensile stresses in the Mo-Ti FGM were much lower than the bending strength of Mo-Ti alloys, which demonstrated that during fabrication no damages occurred in the Mo-Ti FGM with continuously graded composition.
