Three-dimensional thermoelastic analysis of functionally graded plate
Three-dimensional thermoelastic analysis is presented for an orthotropic functionally graded rectangular plate, which is simply supported and isothermal on its four lateral edges. With the assumption that material properties have arbitrary dependence on the thickness-coordinate, a Peano-Baker series solution is obtained for the thermoelastic fields of the functionally graded plate subjected to mechanical and thermal loads on its upper and lower surfaces by means of state space method. The correctness of the obtained series solution is validated through numerical examples. The influence of different material properties distributions on the structural response of the plate is also studied.
