Analysis of functionally graded thick truncated cone with finite length under hydrostatic internal pressure
- 163 Downloads
Finite Element Method based on Rayleigh–Ritz energy formulation is applied to obtain the elastic behavior of functionally graded thick truncated cone. The cone has finite length, and it is subjected to axisymmetric hydrostatic internal pressure. The inner surface of the cone is pure ceramic and the outer surface is pure metal, and the material composition varying continuously along its thickness. Using this method, the effects of semi-vertex angle of the cone and the power law exponent on distribution of different types of displacements and stresses are considered.
