The dynamic response and stability of thin-walled rectangular plates made from Functionally Graded Materials (FGMs) under blast loading is investigated using numerical simulations. FGMs are advanced composite materials which possess continuous variation of material properties in the thickness direction. The composition of the FGM is defined by using the volume fractions of the constituent materials distributed across the thickness direction. The general rule of mixtures is used to predict the material property of the FGM plates. Finite element modeling and simulation is undertaken using ABAQUS for plates with different boundary conditions, loading and aspect ratio. The results of this investigation show the potential application of FGMs as thin-walled structural materials in the future development of resilient structural systems under extreme loading.
