An analysis on nonlinear dynamic of a cantilevered functionally graded materials (FGM) plate which subjected to the transverse excitation in the uniform thermal environment is presented for the first time. Materials properties of the constituents are graded in the thickness direction according to a power-law distribution and assumed to be temperature dependent. In the framework of the Third-order shear deformation plate theory, the nonlinear governing equations of motion for the functionally graded materials plate are derived by using the Hamilton’s principle. For cantilever rectangular plate, the first two vibration mode shapes that satisfy the boundary conditions is given. The Galerkin’s method is utilized to discretize the governing equations of motion to a two-degree-of-freedom nonlinear system under combined thermal and external excitations. By using the numerical method, the two-degree-of-freedom nonlinear system is analyzed to find the nonlinear responses of the cantilever FGMs plate. The influences of the thermal environments on the nonlinear dynamic response of the cantilevered FGM plate are discussed in detail through a parametric study.
