Article Preview

Axisymmetric nonlinear bending of the functionally graded circular plates is investigated in the present work. The material properties of plates are assumed to be graded in the thickness direction according to a simple power law distribution in terms of the volume fractions of the constituents, and to be temperature-dependent. Based on the classical nonlinear plate theory, the governing equations for the problem are derived, and then a shooting method is employed to numerically solve the equations. Effects of material constant, temperature- dependent properties and boundary conditions on the nonlinear bending behavior of the FGM plate are discussed in details.
