Abstract

This work presents an efficient and original high-order shear and normal deformation theory for the static and free vibration analysis of functionally graded plates. The Hamilton’s principle is used herein to derive the equations of motion. The number of unknowns and governing equations of the present theory is reduced, and hence makes it simple to use. The present plate theory approach accounts for both transverse shear and normal deformations and satisfies the zero traction boundary conditions on the surfaces of the plate without using shear correction factor. Unlike any other theory, the number of unknown functions involved in displacement field is only four, as against five or more in the case of other shear and normal deformation theories. The accuracy of the proposed solution is checked by comparing it with other closed form solutions available in the literature.
