Nonlinear analysis of a thin circular functionally grade plate is formulated in terms of von Karman’s dynamic equations. The plate thickness is constant and temperature-dependent functionally graded material (FGM) properties vary through the thickness of the plate. Forces and moments of the plate, due to large vibration amplitudes, are developed in this paper by solving the governing equations for harmonic vibrations. Corresponding results are illustrated in the case of steady-state free vibration. The results show that the variation of volume fraction index is influential in forces, moments, and FGM properties.
