This paper presents a review of the principal developments in functionally graded materials (FGMs) with an emphasis on the recent work published since 2000. Diverse areas relevant to various aspects of theory and applications of FGM are reflected in this paper. They include homogenization of particulate FGM, heat transfer issues, stress, stability and dynamic analyses, testing, manufacturing and design, applications, and fracture. The critical areas where further research is needed for a successful implementation of FGM in design are outlined in the conclusions.

Nonlinear behavior of FGM metal-ceramic (aluminum-alumina) plates subject to a transverse load (75). The power-law exponent in the relationship for the volume fraction distribution through the thickness is denoted by n. Case (a): nondimensional central deflection; Case (b): nondimensional axial stress at the center of the plate.
