Finite difference adaptation of the decomposition of layered composite structures on irregular grid
2014 (English)In: Journal of composite materials, ISSN 0021-9983, E-ISSN 1530-793X, Vol. 48, no 20, 2427-2439 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The finite difference method is used to solve the time-dependent thermo mechanical response of a layered composite structure subjected to fire. State variables of the composite are chosen whereby the external and internal boundary conditions are derived for an irregular grid through the thickness of the structure. The homogenised mass flux and specific heat capacity of pyrolysis gases over a layered composite is also defined. The formulations are tested against documented results found in the literature.
