Nonlinear vibrations of moderately thick functionally graded (FG) rectangular plates are investigated by considering a higher-order shear deformation theory that takes into account the thickness deformation effect. The geometrically nonlinear strain-displacement relationships are derived retaining full non-linear terms in the in-plane and transverse displacements and the three-dimensional constitutive equations are used by removing the assumption of zero transverse normal strain. The plate is assumed to have immovable boundary conditions at the edges. The equations of motion are obtained by using multi-modal energy approach. A code based on pseudo arc-length continuation and collocation scheme is utilized for numerical continuation and bifurcation analysis. Results show that higher-order thickness deformation theories yield a significant accuracy improvement for nonlinear vibrations of highly pressurized functionally graded plates.
