Abstract: This paper presents a review of the principal developments in functionally graded materials (FGMs) with an emphasis on the recent work published since 2000. Diverse areas relevant to various aspects of theory and applications of FGM are reflected in this paper. They include homogenization of particulate FGM, heat transfer issues, stress, stability and dynamic analyses, testing, manufacturing and design, applications, and fracture. The critical areas where further research is needed for a successful implementation of FGM in design are outlined in the conclusions. DOI: 10.1115/1.2777164

Abstract: In this paper, an efficient and simple refined shear deformation theory is presented for the vibration and buckling of exponentially graded material sandwich plate resting on elastic foundations under various boundary conditions. The displacement field of the present theory is chosen based on nonlinear variations in the in-plane displacements through the thickness of the plate. By dividing the transverse displacement into the bending and shear parts and making further assumptions, the number of unknowns and equations of motion of the present theory is reduced and hence makes them simple to use. Equations of motion are derived from Hamilton’s principle. Numerical results for the natural frequencies and critical buckling loads of several types of symmetric exponentially graded material sandwich plates are presented. The accuracy of the present theory is verified by comparing the obtained results with solutions available in the literature. Numerical results show that the present theory can archive accuracy c...
