Modelling Thermomechanical Response of a Diamond Particle in a Metallic Matrix

Kielce University of Technology

Kielce University of Technology

The paper deals with numerical and analytical modelling of synthetic diamond particle retention in a metallic matrix. The model of a diamond particle embedded in a metallic matrix was created using the Abaqus software. The numerical results were compared with the experimental data. The analytical model of a spherical particle in a metallic matrix was built. The analysis has indicated the mechanical parameters responsible for the retention of diamond particles in a matrix.
Keywords: synthetic diamond; metallic matrix; finite element method
