Abstract

Based on the Frobenius series method, stresses analysis of the functionally graded rotating thick cylindrical pressure vessels (FGRTCPV) are examined. The vessel is considered in both plane stress and plane strain conditions. All of the cylindrical shell properties except the Poisson ratio are considered exponential function along the radial direction. The governing Navier equation for this problem is determined, by employing the principle of the two-dimensional elastic theories. This paper presents a closed-form analytical solution for the Navier equation of FGRTCPV as the novelty of the present paper. Moreover, a finite element (FE) model is developed for comparison with the results of the Frobenius series method. This comparison demonstrates that the results of the Frobenius series method are accurate. Finally, the effect of some parameters on stresses analysis of the FGRTCPV is examined. In order to investigate the inhomogeneity effect on the elastic analysis of functionally graded rotating thick cylindrical pressure vessels with exponentially-varying properties, values of the parameters have been set arbitrary in the present study. The presented outcomes illustrate that the inhomogeneity constant provides a major effect on the mechanical behaviors of the exponential FG thick cylindrical under pressure.
