Review on Functionally Graded Structures

samiksha agarwal, Vikas Bansal


Functionally graded structure is a type of advanced structure characterized by fluctuation in properties. This paper describes the review of FGM: basic concept, processing technique, application and gradation of FGM properties. This paper also describes the recent development in FGM and future research direction which is required to implement in design and analysis.
