Abstract : A linear temperature field with a resulting uniform flow of heat through an uninhibited (with respect to deformation) matrix medium produce a spherical bending deformation of the medium free from any stresses whatsoever. However, if a foreign body such as a stiff microfiber is embedded in the matrix the body will resist bending in conformity with the matrix and thus give rise to a local stress field. Depending upon the shape and size of the microfiber, this stress field may lead to the destruction of the bond between the microfiber and the matrix. The exact determination of bonding stresses between matrix and microfiber has been obtained for a prolate spheroidal microfiber using three dimensional Boussinesq potentials and thermoelastic bipotentials. The bonding stresses have been evaluated on a Univac Solid State (80) computer for various spheroidal shapes. (Author)
