dc.description.abstractThe paper addresses the numerical modeling of the coupling between mechanical strain and thermal conductivity in Ceramic Matrix Composites {CMCs} when subjected to uni-axial mechanical straining. A computationally economic finite element-based multi-linear elastic orthotropic mechanical materials description combined with a multi-linear discretisation of thermal conductivity-strain response has been developed to predict the stress-strain, fracture, and thermal conductivity-strain behaviour of a ceramic matrix composites with strain-induced damage. The finite element analysis utilises a solid element to represent an homogenised orthotropic medium of a heterogeneous uni-directional tow. The discretised non-linear multiaxial stress-strain curves and non-linear multi-axial strain dependent thermal behaviour have been implemented by a user defined subroutine in the commercial finite element package ABAQUS. The model has been used to study the performance of a carbon fibre/carbon matrix-SiC matrix (C/C-SiC) plain weave laminate DLR-XT. With the effects of fibre waviness included, the global stress-strain curves, with catastrophic fracture behaviour, and the thermal conductivity-strain response have been predicted. Excellent comparisons have been made between predictions and experimental data, with fibre waviness included.
