Thin beam of the functionally graded (FG) type subjected to a step heat input on one surface and insulated or exposed to convective heat loss on the opposite surface is under consideration for the evaluation of thermal induced motion. The dynamic displacement and dynamic thermal moment of the beam are analysed when the temperature gradient is independent of the beam displacement. The power law index dictates the metal-ceramic distribution across thickness of the beam and its effect on the

The article discusses, in depth, the influence of various factors such as length to thickness ratio of beam, heat transfer boundary conditions, physical boundary conditions, and metal-ceramic combination on the thermal oscillations of FG beam. It is found that attenuation of the amplitude of static thermal deflection and superimposed thermal oscillations is a strong function of the metal-ceramic combination for the FG beam.
