Abstract

We consider the transient thermal-mechanical behavior of glass-fiber reinforced plastics with temperature-dependent properties at low temperatures. The layered composite is made of a layer bonded between two layers of different physical properties, and it is suddently cooled on the surface. The composite material is generalized plane strain is assumed. The thermal and elastic properties as functions of temperature are compiled from the experimental data. Numerical results presented, include the transient temperature distribution and the thermal-mechanical stress.
