This paper deals with the elastic stress analysis of a steel wire reinforced composite disc with aluminum matrix subjected to temperature specified thermal gradient across the thickness, for the case of radially inward heat flow with linearly-increasing temperature distribution. The values of tangential and radial stress components that have occurred under the effect of the temperature gradient across the outer surface of the disc towards the inner surface have been obtained by both analytical and numerical method using FEA.
