The Functionally gradient materials (FGM) has widely been in engineering applications because of their advantages over composites. Experimental and computational research work are going on various structures made of FGM. Hence numerical simulation has become a prominent area for research in the field of FGM. The aim of current paper is to numerically simulate using finite element method and analyse an FGM plate which is subjected to a transverse mechanical load. The gradation is assumed to vary according to Power law distribution for its constituents materials. The simulation is done using appropriate software. The simply supported FGM plate has been considered for the purpose.
