## Through-Thickness Shearing Effects on Geometric Non-linear Behavior of Thin and Thick Functionally Graded Plates under Pressure Loads

**Authors:** M. Hajikazemi, M. H. Sadr, M. Ramezani-Oliaee

The effects of through-the-thickness shearing strain energy on the
geometric non-linear behavior of thin and relatively thick rectangular
functionally graded plates are studied in this paper. It is assumed that the
mechanical properties of the plates, graded through the thickness, are described
by a simple power law distribution in terms of the volume fractions of
constituents. The plates are assumed to be under lateral pressure loads. The
fundamental equations for rectangular plates of FGM are obtained using the
classical laminated plate theory (CLPT), first order shear deformation theory
(FSDT) and higher order shear deformation theory (HSDT) for large deflection
and the solution is obtained by minimization of the total potential energy.
