Hybrid-Trefftz finite element method for heat conduction in nonlinear functionally graded materials

Fu, Zhuo-Jia; Qin, Qing Hua; Chen, Wen


Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to develop a hybrid-Trefftz (HT) finite element model (FEM) for simulating heat conduction in nonlinear functionally graded materials (FGMs) which can effectively handle continuously varying properties within an element. Design/methodology/approach - In the proposed model, a T-complete set of homogeneous solutions is first derived and used to represent the intra-element temperature fields. As a result, the graded properties of the FGMs are naturally...[Show more]
