Numerical-analytical methods in solid mechanics for functionally graded materials and coatings

Name of the Head: Aizikovich Sergey Mikhailovich


The research of this scientific group is directed towards development of high-accuracy approximate analytical methods for solution of solid mechanics problems. These methods enable to model mechanical behavior of materials with their properties varying along one of coordinate axes by some functional law. Advantages of the used methodology lies in its applicability for complicated or discontinuous laws. Methods can be used to model behavior of periodic, multilayered (nanocomposite) and continuously inhomogeneous (functionally graded) structures. Significant difference of material properties inside the structure can be considered, i.e. elastic modulus can be 100 times greater or lower in substrate than in the coating. Further research is conducted on accounting for coupled action of mechanical, thermal, electrical fields on such materials. Practical importance of obtained results lies in ability of forecasting performance of modern advanced materials and coatings under severe operating conditions (for example, in heavily loaded lubricated contacts involving complex structured coatings), fracture of functionally graded structures, conducting experimental characterization of advanced materials.
