Three dimensional analysis of periodic cracking in FGM coatings under thermal stresses

Dağ, Serkan
Erdogan, Fazil
A three dimensional finite element method is used to examine periodic surface cracking problem in a functionally graded coating subjected to transient thermal loads. The ceramic/metal FGM coating is assumed to contain periodic semi-elliptical cracks and to be perfectly bonded to a homogeneous substrate. The composite structure is subjected to transient residual/thermal stresses. Temperature and displacement fields are computed using a three dimensional finite element approach. Finite element models are created by considering a unit cell in the periodic structure. Mode I stress intensity factors are evaluated by means of the displacement correlation technique (DCT). Presented results illustrate the influence of crack periodicity on the transient behavior of the stress intensity factors.

Three dimensional fracture analysis of FGM coatings
Inan, O; Dağ, Serkan; Erdogan, F (2005-01-01)
In this study the three - dimensional surface cracking of a graded coating bonded to a homogeneous substrate is considered. The main objective is to model the subcritical crack growth process in the coated medium under a cyclic mechanical or thermal loading. Because of symmetry, along the crack front conditions of mode I fracture and plane strain deformations are assumed to be satisfied. Thus, at a given location on the crack front the crack propagation rate would be a function of the mode I stress intensit...
Computational elastodynamics of functionally graded thick-walled cylinders and annular coatings subjected to pressure shocks
Abeidi, Abdelrahim; Dağ, Serkan (2022-12-01)
A computational technique based on domain-boundary element method (D-BEM) is developed for elastodynamic analysis of functionally graded thick-walled cylinders and annular coatings subjected to pressure shock type of loadings. The formulation is built on the wave equation, which is derived in accordance with plane elastody-namics. Weighted residual statement for the wave equation is expressed by using the static fundamental solution as the weight function. Applying integration by parts and incorporating the...
A robust algorithm for configurational-force-driven brittle crack propagation with R-adaptive mesh alignment
MIEHE, CHRISTIAN; Gürses, Ercan (2007-10-08)
The paper considers a variational formulation of brittle fracture in elastic solids and proposes a numerical implementation by a finite element method. On the theoretical side, we outline a consistent thermodynamic framework for crack propagation in an elastic solid. It is shown that both the elastic equilibrium response as well as the local crack evolution follow in a natural format by exploitation of a global Clausius-Planck inequality in the sense of Coleman's method. Here, the canonical direction of the...
The free-end interface crack problem for bonded orthotropic layers
Kadıoğlu, Fevzi Suat (1995-01-01)
The plane elasticity problem of two bonded orthotropoic layers containing cracks perpendicular to and along the interface is considered. The cracks are extended to intersect the boundaries and each other in such a way that a crack configuration suitable to study the edge debonding problem associated with bonded dissimilar materials is obtained. The problem is reduced to the solution of a system of singular integral equations with Cauchy type singularities. Numerical results for stress intensity factors and ...
Hyperbolic heat conduction based weight function method for thermal fracture of functionally graded hollow cylinders
Eshraghi, Iman; Soltani, Nasser; Dağ, Serkan (2018-08-01)
This article introduces a weight function method for fracture analysis of a circumferentially cracked functionally graded hollow cylinder subjected to thermal loads. The non-Fourier hyperbolic heat conduction model is used to determine the transient temperature distribution in the functionally graded cylinder. Solutions for transient temperature and stress distributions in the uncracked cylinder are derived by converting the governing differential equations into Fredholm integral equations in the Laplace do...
