Thermoelastic expansion of spherical fiber composites

  • Nguyen Dinh Duc


A refined solution is constructed for thermoelastic expansion of spherical fiber composites with a three-dimensional structure on the basis of existing hypotheses about the longitudinal state of fibers in a matrix strengthened with spherical inclusions. Relationships defining the dependence in explicit form of thermoelastic coefficients on structural parameters are obtained in analytical form. Thermal expansion coefficients for composites with cubic symmetry are discussed in detail.
