Three dimensional finite elements modeling of FGM plate bending using UMAT
Khalid Messaoudi, Abdelkrim Boukhalfa and Youcef Beldjelili

    The purpose of the present paper is to study the bending and free vibration of Functionally Graded Material (FGM) plate using user-defined material subroutine on the finite element software ABAQUS. The FGM plate is simply supported and subjected to sinusoidal and uniform load. The Poisson\'s ratio is kept constant. The results obtained compared to those available in the literature show the convergence, the exactitude and the efficiency of the method used with various power index of the materials.
Key Words
