Free vibration responses of functionally graded spherical shell panels are investigated in the present article. A general mathematical model is developed based on higher order shear deformation theory mid-plane kinematics. The effective material properties are graded in the thickness direction according to a power-law distribution and it varies continuously from metal (bottom surface) to ceramic (top surface). The model is discretized using a nine noded quadrilateral Lagrangian element. A convergence test has been done with different mesh refinement and compared with the available published results. In addition to that the present study includes an ANSYS model check with the developed mathematical model to show the efficacy. New results are computed for different parameters such as volume fraction, thickness ratio, curvature ratio and support conditions which indicates the effect of parametric study on non-dimensional frequency parameters.
