Abstract: In the present paper, the dynamic behavior of functionally graded piezoelectric materials is investigated when it is under anti-plane mechanical loading and in-plane electrical loading. It is assumed that the shear modulus, the piezoelectric modulus, the dielectric modulus and mass density of FGPM vary continuously as functions of and . By using Fourier transforms the solution of equilibrium equations is obtained in closed form. The expressions for displacement and electrical potential are obtained in terms of one unknown function. Finally the results are applied to obtain a solution of the moving contact problem on the surface of the functionally graded piezoelectric material (FGPM).
