Thermal Stress in a Functionally Graded Curved Bar

M. Mohammadi and J.R. Dryden (Canada)


Functionally graded material; Mathematical modeling; Curved bar


The thermoelastic stress distribution across an inhomoge neous circular beam is considered. As in previous treat ments the spatial variation of the elastic stiffness is mod elled by a power law and Poisson’s ratio is held fixed. The stress field in the bar is compared with similar results that been previously found in nonhomogeneous pipes.
