Mechanical Behavior of 2D FGP Beam with Uneven Porosity Distribution




2D FGP beam, Uneven porosity, Bending, Transverse deflection


This study gives the mechanical behavior of 2D functionally graded porous (FGP) beams using the finite element method. The Matlab code with simple Timoshenko beam elements is written to solve 2D FGP beam problems under distributed load. The transverse deflections are plotted along the length to provide mechanical views about this structure in reality.
