Finite element solutions to the static responses of functionally graded plates and shell panels are investigated in this chapter. The overall material properties of metal/ceramic functionally graded material are considered to be temperature independent and modeled via power-law based Voigt’s material scheme. The present functionally graded curved panels are modeled and analyzed in the commercially available finite element tool ANSYS APDL via eight-noded serendipity element (SHELL281). The mesh refinement test is executed followed by the validation test by comparing the present results with the reported results. The influences of the volume fractions, boundary conditions, curvature ratios, and thickness ratios on the central deflections and the axial stresses of functionally graded curved shell panels are illustrated and discussed in detail. © 2019 Elsevier Ltd.
