This paper is concerned with the study of elasto-plastic deformation of the coating, and consequently, the changes in the states of stress in the constituent phases of a unidirectional fiber reinforced polymer matrix composite (PMC) under uniform thermal, hygral and hygrothermal loadings. A four-phase composite cylinder assemblage (CCA) model has been used for the analysis. The coating interphase between the fiber and the matrix has been taken to be of lower modulus and lower yield stress value… CONTINUE READING
