Fundamental solution based graded element model for steady-state heat transfer in FGM

CAO, Leilei; Wang, Hui; Qin, Qing Hua


A novel hybrid graded element model is developed in this paper for investigating thermal behavior of functionally graded materials (FGMs). The model can handle a spatially varying material property field of FGMs. In the proposed approach, a new variational functional is first constructed for generating corresponding finite element model. Then, a graded element is formulated based on two sets of independent temperature fields. One is known as intra-element temperature field defined within the...[Show more]
