Abstract

Green functions for temperature rise in a semi-infinite space containing an ellipsoidal inclusion are obtained in the present study. Explicit expression for disturbed temperature rise generated by eigen-temperature gradients uniformly distributed within a domain is derived. Further, the proposed analytical solution method is utilized to deal with temperature rise in heterogeneous half-space subjected to friction heating via applying the equivalent inclusion method (EIM), whose results are proven to be in good agreements with those of the benchmarks. Influences of heat load velocity, spatial orientation and aspect ratio of ellipsoidal inhomogeneity on temperature rise in a semi-infinite space are discussed. Finally, a model of semi-infinite medium with embedded dispersed ellipsoidal inhomogeneities of arbitrary spatial orientation is adopted to explore the application scope of the proposed solution method.
