Abstract

In the present study an elastic-plastic stress analysis is carried out for long silicon carbide fiber reinforced magnesium metal matrix composite with a square hole by using finite element technique. Composite material is manufactured by using molds under a pressure of 35 MPa and heating up to 550 0C by electrical resistance. The laminated plates with square hole consist of four layers and bonded symmetrically. Each layer with constant thickness is meshed into 48 elements and 228 nodes with simply supported. The expansion of plastic zone and residual stress are determined in the symmetric cross-ply and angle-ply laminated plates for small deformations. The load is increased by 0.01 MPa at each step . Iteration numbers are chosen as 150, 300 and 600. The resılts show that the intensity of the residual stresses is maximum near the open square hole and the yield points in symmetric laminates are higher than those in antisymmetric laminates.The plastic regions at the plate edges expand in the direction of the fiber, but at the border of the hole expand toward the diagonal of the hole.
