Thermal residual stresses of TiC-Ni FGMs during fabrication were calculated by the finite element method. Influence of the gradient exponent p on the maximum stress, center location of maximum stress and maximum stress of TiC side were investigated. The thermal stress relaxation design and structural optimization of TiC-Ni FGMs was fulfilled. The results showed that the linear compositional design is reasonable for the TiC-Ni FGMs system.
