Abstract

Basing on the First-order Shear Deformation Theory (FSDT), this paper focuses on the dynamic behaviour of moderately thick functionally graded parabolic panels and shells of revolution. A generalization of the power-law distribution presented in literature is proposed. Two different four-parameter power-law distributions are considered for the ceramic volume fraction. Some symmetric and asymmetric material profiles through the functionally graded shell thickness are illustrated by varying the four parameters of power-law distributions. The governing equations of motion are expressed as functions of five kinematic parameters. For the discretization of the system equations the Generalized Differential Quadrature (GDQ) method has been used. Numerical results concerning four types of parabolic shell structures illustrate the influence of the parameters of the power-law distribution on the mechanical behaviour of shell structures considered.
