||Functionally graded material; transient heat conduction; hybrid numerical method
||A transient heat conduction analysis of the functionally graded material (FGM) plates has been investigated based on the hybrid numerical method (HNM). HNM combines the layer element method with the method of Fourier transforms and proves to be efficient and reliable. The FGM plates are infinite large and the material properties vary continuously through thickness. The transient heat source acted on the FGM plates. The temperature distribution of the FGM plates is obtained in different time and different position. Some useful results for transient heat conduction are shown in figures. Applications of HNM to transient heat conduction are firstly presented a new way for studying the transient heat conduction problems.
