Abstract
Abstract null null This paper presents an analytical solution for a thick-walled hollow sphere interiorly reinforced by a soft graded layer subjected to an arbitrary uniform axial symmetric outer traction. The elastic modulus of the graded reinforcement is assumed to vary through its thickness as a power-law function. The resultant inhomogeneous Navier’s equations of equilibrium are in the form of a system of second-order differential equations of the Euler type. The differential system is subsequently solved as an eigenvalue problem by the use of variable replacement and differential theory. Stress distributions and stress concentrations are analyzed for five inhomogeneity indices due to pure-shear, unidirectional, all-around and centrosymmetric outer tractions. For each loading configuration, the effects of property gradation of the reinforcement layer on stress reductions of hollow spheres are analyzed. The optimal inhomogeneity index that leads to the best stress distributions and therefore the least stress concentrations is also determined. For the purpose of verification and validation, finite element modelings are also conducted for some numerical examples. The fundamental mechanism of reducing stress concentrations is to drive the high-stress zone typically occurring along the inner surface of hollow spheres toward their outer boundary such that stresses may distribute more uniformly through the thickness dimension.

Abstract Wave propagation analysis of porous functionally graded (FG) sandwich plate in a hygro-thermal environment is presented in this paper. The sandwich plates’ composing materials change through three layers that are either homogeneous ceramic, homogeneous metal, or power-law-based functionally graded ceramic-metal. Six different porosity models are considered in the analysis to express the porosities’ distribution factor and uniformity. The study is conducted using a simple four-unknown in...

The aim of this work is to study the hygro-thermo-mechanical bending responses of simply supported FG plate resting on a Winkler-Pasternak elastic foundation. The effect transverse shear strains is taken into account in which the zero transverse shear stress condition on the top and bottom surfaces of the plate is ensured without using any shear correction factors. The developed model contains only four unknowns variable which is reduced compared to other HSDTs models. The material properties of...

This paper presents a high-order shear and normal deformation theory for the bending of FGM plates. The number of unknowns and governing equations of the present theory is reduced, and hence makes it simple to use. Unlike any other theory, the number of unknown functions involved in displacement field is only four, as against five or more in the case of other shear and normal deformation theories. Based on the novel shear and normal deformation theory, the position of neutral surface is determin...

Abstract The aim of this paper is to understand how the shear modulus of a particulate composite, manufactured with hollow spheres surrounded by a graded interphase in a matrix, depends on the properties of the interphase zone and the inclusion wall. Considering composites with small volume fractions of the hollow inclusions and assuming isotropic phases with a radial power law behavior for the shear modulus in the inhomogeneous interphase, the boundary value problems used to determine shear mod...

Abstract In this paper, the complex phenomena of the elastic and elastoplastic indentation responses of functionally graded materials (FGMs) are studied in the framework of frictional contact mechanics using finite element method. The proposed model accounts for the continuous gradation of all the elastic and plastic properties of the indented material along its thickness using power law function and Tamura, Tomota and Ozawa (TTO) model. Classical Coulomb's friction law is utilized to model the ...

In this work, the buckling analysis of material sandwich plates based on a two-parameter elastic foundation under various boundary conditions is investigated on the basis of a new theory of refined trigonometric shear deformation. This theory includes indeterminate integral variables and contains only four unknowns in which any shear correction factor not used, with even less than the conventional theory of first shear strain (FSDT). Applying the principle of virtual displacements, the governing...

In this paper, for the first time based on the nonlocal strain gradient theory the effect of size dependency in torsional vibration of bi-direction functionally graded (FG) nonlinear nano-cone is study. The material properties were assumed to vary according to the arbitrary function in radial and axial directions. The Navier equation and boundary conditions of the size-dependent bidirectional FG nonlinear nano-cone were derived by Hamilton's principle. These equations were solved by employing th...
