In unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), the high temperature results from friction with the air, combustion of fuel and combustion gas of a nozzle etc. It causes serious problems in the UAV structure. The characteristic analysis of heat resistant metal and ceramic materials and creep analysis for the functionally graded material (FGM) is presented in this paper. FGM is composed of two constituent materials that are mixed up according to the specific volume fraction distribution in order to withstand high heat condition. In addition, the creep behavior of FGM applied in duct structure of an engine is analyzed.
