Abstract:

The general emphasis for 1994 would be on increased software development, testing of subelements and design calculations. For these purposes, the constitutive law coding and development would be coordinated by Nick Aravas, and implemented in ABAQUS. The initial implementation would be the elasticplastic model for MMCs with interface debonding developed in 1993 Leckie. This would be extended in 1994 to include creep and some aspects of thermomechanical cycling. The code would be used for design calculations concerned with MMC rotors, actuators and vanes Leckie. A plan is being formulated to collaborate with Pratt and Whitney to acquire MMC sub-elements representative of these components during 1994. Experimental tests on these subelements would be capable of providing a direct validation of the code capabilities.
