A Review of Thermal and Mechanical Analysis in Single and Bi-layer Plate


This paper reviews several aspects of thermal and mechanical properties of cookware appliance. Numerical results of temperature distribution (TD), heat retaining, thermal stress and body deformation are summarized. Finite Element Method, ANSYS program, is employed. We described different thermal and mechanical results of Al/Cr-Ni, Al/SSt, Al/Ti, Cu/Cr-Ni, Cu/SSt, Cu/Ti, gray cast iron (GCI), carbon steel (CSt), iron. The laminated plate provides improved thermal and chemical properties in comparison with single layer. From this analysis the result suggests that Cu/SSt bi-metal structure provides the best application as cookware.
