Time-dependent behavior of continuous-fiber-reinforced metal matrix composites: Modeling and applications
Date of Original Version
A time-dependent approach employing a four-phase concentric cylinder model has been developed to predict the response of titanium-based metal matrix composites subjected to thermomechanical loadings in which both plastic and creep responses of the composites are considered. The progressive development of plasticity in the matrix phase is determined using the deformation theory of plasticity while the creep deformation of this phase is estimated using the Bailey-Norton equation with an Arrhenius-type expression for the time-dependent creep coefficient.
