Stress state of thermosensitive thick cylinders made of anisotropic composites

  • A. T. Vasilenko
  • G. K. Sudavtsova


The class of problems on the axially symmetric stress state of thick cylinders made of anisotropic materials is considered. The problems are solved numerically. The temperature and mechanical fields in the composite cylinders are investigated taking into account the temperature dependence of the matrix and reinforcement characteristics, as well as the variability of density and angle of reinforcement across the thickness.
