Nonaxisymmetric thermomechanical analysis of functionally graded hollow cylinders
Additional Document Info
Analytical solutions for nonaxisymmetric, thermomechanical response of functionally graded hollow cylinders are obtained in this article. The hollow cylinders are assumed to be subjected to nonaxisymmetric mechanical and transient thermal loads. Properties of functionally graded material are considered as temperature-independent and continuously varying in radial direction. Employing complex Fourier series and Laplace transform techniques, analytical solutions of time-dependent temperature and thermomechanical stresses are obtained. Numerical values of temperature and stresses of a FGM hollow cylinder under assumed thermomechanical loads are presented in graphical form.
