Abstract: 

In the present article, static response and free vibration of functionally graded carbon nanotube reinforced composite (FG-CNTRC) rectangular plate resting on Winkler–Pasternak elastic foundations using an analytical approach are studied. The rectangular plates are reinforced by single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) which are assumed to be graded through the thickness direction with four types of distributions. The mathematical model of the FG-CNTRC plate is developed based on the first-order shear deformation plate theory (FSDT) and Hamilton principle. By using Navier solution, the governing equations are solved to obtain the central deflection and the natural frequency parameters. Several examples are verified to have higher accuracy than those from the previous method in the literature. Also, the effects of different parameters on static response and natural frequency of FG-CNTRC plate are highlighted by solving numerous examples. Finally, these new results may serve as benchmarks for future investigations.
