Functionally Graded Structures
- 91 Downloads
In the present chapter functionally graded materials (FGMs) and structures are presented. In particular, the static and free vibration problems of Timoshenko beams and Mindlin plates are studied. The buckling problem for both structures can be developed following analogous problems presented in Chap. 10 for Timoshenko beams and in Chap. 14 for laminated FSDT plates.
