thick-walled cylinder made of functionally graded material under internal
and external pressure are obtained as a function of radial direction to
an exact solution by using the theory of elasticity. Material properties
are considered as a function of the radius of the cylinder and the Poisson`s
ratio as constant. The distributions of the thermal stresses are obtained
for different values of the powers of the module of elasticity.]]>Argeso, H. and A.N. Eraslan,2008Boresi, A.P. and K.P. Chong,1999Jabbari, M., S. Sohrabpour and M.R. Eslami,2002Jabbari, M., A.H.
