Summary

Due to the low elastic limit of Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) and the likelihood of relatively high stresses in the region where CMC components are connected to metal structures, modelling CMC behaviour beyond its linear elastic limit is important. In this paper, a continuum mechanics based material law is presented, with emphasis on its implementation into a finite element analysis package through a first order explicit scheme.
