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 reduced to a singular integral equation of the second kind which is solved numerically by using an expansion-collocation technique. Computational studies of the sliding contact problems of laterally graded materials are conducted by means of the finite element method. In the finite element analyses, the laterally graded half-plane is discretized by quadratic finite elements for which the material parameters are specified at the centroids. Flat and triangular punch profiles are considered in the parametric analyses. The comparisons of the results generated by the analytical technique to those computed by the finite element method demonstrate the high level of accuracy attained by both methods. The presented numerical results illustrate the influences of the lateral nonhomogeneity and the coefficient of friction on the contact stresses.

 Consideration of spatial variation of the friction coefficient in contact mechanics analysis of laterally graded materials Dağ, Serkan (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 b...
 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...
 Thermal fracture analysis of orthotropic functionally graded materials using an equivalent domain integral approach Dağ, Serkan (2006-12-01) A new computational method based on the equivalent domain integral (EDI) is developed for mode I fracture analysis of orthotropic functionally graded materials (FGMs) subjected to thermal stresses. By using the constitutive relations of plane orthotropic thermoelasticity, generalized definition of the J-integral is converted to an equivalent domain integral to calculate the thermal stress intensity factor. In the formulation of the EDI approach, all the required thermomechanical properties are assumed to ha...
 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...
 Dynamic analysis of beams with breathing crack using finite element method Özkan, Berkay; Kadıoğlu, Fevzi Suat; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017) Non-linear dynamic characteristics of a beam with a breathing crack are investigated using finite element method. This thesis has two main objectives: (1) to obtain a foresight for the vibration based crack detection by using finite element method (2) to investigate the effects of crack location, crack depth, excitation frequency, excitation amplitude and boundary conditions on the indications of crack presence. Two dimensional finite element approach is used to model a square cross sectional beam subjected...
