Non-Symmetric Thermal Shock In Ceramic Matrix Composite (Cmc) Materials

  • Tomasz SadowskiEmail author
Part of the Solid Mechanics And Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 154)

A methodology has been proposed to describe CMC and functionally graded materials (FGM) thermomechanical response subjected to sudden changes of the temperature field. Appropriate gradation of the composite properties can significantly improve thermal shock response of the material itself or a structural element. The governing equations for the temperature field under transient thermal loading are formulated, and solution of the analytical and two numerical methods FEA and FD were discussed. The role of the thermal residual stress is significant in the analysis of thermal shock problems. In a non-symmetrical gradation profile they create initial curvature of the FGM structural element. The basic fracture mechanics idea is presented and is applied to CMC and FGM which were subjected to a transient temperature field. In particular the crack-bridging mechanism plays an important role in the assessment of the composites response. Numerical examples dealing with 1-D and 2-D non-symmetric thermal shock problem illustrate the effectiveness of the theoretical methods to the solution of practical problems.
