# Consideration of spatial variation of the friction coefficient in contact mechanics analysis of laterally graded materials

2016-01-01
This paper presents a new analytical approach for sliding contact analysis of laterally graded materials, which allows taking into account the spatial variation of the friction coefficient. The method is developed by considering a sliding frictional contact problem between a laterally graded elastic medium and a rigid flat punch. Governing partial differential equations entailing the displacement components are derived in accordance with the theory of plane elasticity. General solutions are determined and boundary conditions are implemented by the use of Fourier transformation; and the problem is reduced to a singular integral equation of the second kind. Both the shear modulus and the coefficient of friction are assumed to be a functions of the lateral coordinate in the derivations. The singular integral equation is solved numerically by means of an expansion-collocation technique in which the primary unknown is represented as a series in terms of Jacobi polynomials. Outlined procedures yield the stresses at the half-plane surface and the tangential contact force required for sliding. Proposed techniques are verified by making comparisons to the contact stresses computed for constant-friction type sliding contact problems involving homogeneous and laterally graded materials. Parametric analyses are presented so as to demonstrate the influences of the variations in the friction coefficient and the shear modulus upon the contact stresses and the tangential contact force.

 Sliding frictional contact between a rigid punch and a laterally graded elastic medium Dağ, Serkan; Yidirim, Bora; Ozatag, A. Cihan (2009-11-01) Analytical and computational methods are developed for contact mechanics analysis of functionally graded materials (FGMs) that possess elastic gradation in the lateral direction. In the analytical formulation, the problem of a laterally graded half-plane in sliding frictional contact with a rigid punch of an arbitrary profile is considered. The governing partial differential equations and the boundary conditions of the problem are satisfied through the use of Fourier transformation. The problem is then redu...
 Multi-layer model for moving contact problems of functionally graded coatings with general variations in physical properties Toktaş, Selim Ercihan; Dağ, Serkan (2022-04-01) This paper presents a multi-layer model for moving contact problems of functionally graded coatings whose physical properties have general spatial variations. The coating is assumed to be composed of an arbitrary number of layers and perfectly bonded to an elastic substrate. Wave equations for the layers and the substrate are derived in accordance with the plane theory of elastodynamics. The equations are solved by the application of Galilean and Fourier transformations. Flat and triangular punch profiles a...
 Consideration of spatial variation of the length scale parameter in static and dynamic analyses of functionally graded annular and circular micro-plates Eshraghi, Iman; Dağ, Serkan; Soltani, Nasser (2015-09-01) This article introduces new methods for static and free vibration analyses of functionally graded annular and circular micro-plates, which can take into account spatial variation of the length scale parameter. The underlying higher order continuum theory behind the proposed approaches is the modified couple stress theory. A unified way of expressing the displacement field is adopted so as to produce numerical results for three different plate theories, which are Kirchhoff plate theory (KPT), Mindlin plate t...
 Contact mechanics of graded materials: Analyses using singular integral equations Dağ, Serkan (2006-10-18) Contact stress distribution at an FGM surface is evaluated using an analytical technique based on the singular integral equations. An FGM half-plane is assumed to be in sliding contact with a rigid stamp of an arbitrary profile. The functionally graded medium is assumed to possess two-dimensional material property variations. Two independent nonhomogeneity constants are used to derive the governing partial differential equations. By using the integral transform techniques, all boundary conditions are satisf...
 Computational Methods for Inclined Cracks in Orthotropic Functionally Graded Materials Under Thermal Stresses Dağ, Serkan; TOPAL, SERRA (2013-10-03) This article sets forth two different computational methods developed to evaluate fracture parameters for inclined cracks lying in orthotropic functionally graded materials, that are under the effect of thermal stresses. The first method is based on the J(k)-integral, whereas the second entails the use of the J(1)-integral and the asymptotic displacement fields. The procedures introduced are implemented by means of the finite element method and integrated into a general purpose finite element analysis softw...
