In this paper, nonlinear thermo-mechanical free vibration analysis of functionally graded (FG) beams investigated. Euler-Bernoulli assumptions together with Von Karman’s strain-displacement relation are employed to derive the nonlinear governing partial differential equation (PDE) of motion. He’s variational method is employed to obtain a simple and efficient approximate closed form solution of the nonlinear governing equation. Comparison between results of the present work and those available in literature shows the accuracy of presented technique. Some new results for the nonlinear natural frequencies of the FG beams such as the effect of vibration amplitude, material inhomogeneity and thermal loading are presented for future references.
