On rotating circular disks with varying material properties
Journal: Zeitschrift fur Angewandte Mathematik und Physik
Taking Young's modulus, thermal expansion coefficient and density to be the functions of the radial coordinate, a closed form solution of rotating circular disks made of functionally graded materials subjected to a constant angular velocity and a uniform temperature change is proposed in this paper. Excellent agreement with the solution from Mathematica 5.0 indicates the correctness of the proposed closed form solution. Distributions of the radial displacement and stresses in the disks are determined with the proposed approach and how material properties, temperature change, geometric size and different material coefficients affect deformations and stresses is investigated. © 2007 Birkhäuser Verlag, Basel.
