High-Temperature Mechanical Hysteresis in Ceramic-Matrix Composites

English | 2022 | ISBN: 1032316101 | 236 pages | True PDF | 29.73 MB

This book focuses on mechanical hysteresis behavior in different fiber-reinforced ceramic-matrix composites (CMCs), including 1D minicomposites, 1D unidirectional, 2D cross-ply, 2D plain-woven, 2.5D woven, and 3D needle-punched composites.
Ceramic-matrix composites (CMCs) are considered to be the lightweight high-temperature materials for hot-section components in aeroengines with the most potential. To improve the reliability and safety of CMC components during operation, it is necessary to conduct damage and failure mechanism analysis, and to develop models to predict this damage as well as fracture over lifetime – mechanical hysteresis is a key damage behavior in fiber-reinforced CMCs. The appearance of hysteresis is due to a composite’s internal damage mechanisms and modes, such as, matrix cracking, interface debonding, and fiber failure. Micromechanical damage models and constitutive models are developed to predict mechanical hysteresis in different CMCs. Effects of a composite’s constituent properties, stress level, and the damage states of the mechanical hysteresis behavior of CMCs are also discussed. This book also covers damage mechanisms, damage models and micromechanical constitutive models for the mechanical hysteresis of CMCs.
This book will be a great resource for students, scholars, material scientists and engineering designers who would like to understand and master the mechanical hysteresis behavior of fiber-reinforced CMCs.
