When a coated short fiber composite is subject to temperature change, thermal stresses in and around the coated fibers are induced due to the mismatch of thermal expansion coefficients of the constituents. The problem of the above thermal stresses in a coated short fiber composite is solved by using the Eshelby’s equivalent inclusion method under the assumption of thin coating. A parametric study is then conducted to examine the effect of thermo-mechanical properties of the coating on the stress field in an and around a coated short fiber. It is found in this study that critical parameters influencing the thermal stress field are the thermal expansion coefficients of the fiber and coating.
