Deformation and fracture of metal-ceramic composites and coatings under quasistatic tension, compression, shear, and during cooling from the melt to room temperatures are numerically investigated. Dynamic and quasistatic boundary-value problems are solved in twoand three-dimensional formulations by the finite-difference and finite-element methods. Constitutive models include the isotropic hardening of aluminum and fracture of ceramic particles. Composite microstructure is taken into account explicitly. Analysis of the fracture in composites is carried out, with the residual stresses being not taken into consideration. Origination of cracks in the near-interface regions of bulk tension and their propagation in ceramic particles are investigated. Residual stresses formed during cooling of the composites are calculated for different volume fractions of particles.
