Oct 15, 2018 · For functionally graded plates the material properties vary through the thickness. Furthermore, the variation of the thermal load in FGM plates is usually un-uniform through thickness. Thus when FGM plates are subjected to mechanical in-plane load or thermal load, bending moments are developed together with the membrane forces and consequently the plate would deflect as soon as Influence of geometric discontinuities and geometric Sep 24, 2020 · In the present article, the vibrational behaviour of a functionally graded plate (FGP) resting on elastic foundations under a thermal environment with geom Influence of geometric discontinuities and geometric/microstructural defects on the temperature-dependent vibration response of functionally graded plates on elastic foundation SpringerLink
Jun 23, 2021 · In the framework of nonlocal strain gradient theory, a size-dependent symmetric and sigmoid functionally graded (FG) Timoshenko beam model is developed to study and analyze the free vibration and dynamic response under moving load, for the first time. To incorporate the size-dependent effect, the nonlocal strain gradient theory is adopted. The Hamilton principle is employed to drive the Analysis of Functionally Graded Material Plates Using Apr 08, 2014 · On the contrary, another class of materials, called the functionally graded materials (FGMs), are made up of mixture of ceramics and metals and are characterized by smooth and continuous transition in properties from one surface to another [ 1 ]. As a result, FGMs are preferred over the laminated composites for structural integrity.
