In this paper, the free vibration behavior of functionally graded (FG) thin annular sector plates in thermal environment is studied using the differential quadrature method (DQM). The material properties of the FG plate are assumed to be temperature dependent and vary continuously through the thickness, according to the power-law distribution of the volume fraction of the constituents. The nonlinear temperature distribution along the thickness direction of the plate is considered. Based on the classical plate theory, the governing differential equations of motion of the plate are derived and solved numerically using DQM. The natural frequencies of thin FG annular sector plates in thermal environment under various combinations of clamped, free, and simply supported boundary conditions (BCs) are presented for the first time. To ensure the accuracy of the method, the natural frequencies of a pure metallic plate are calculated and compared with those existing in the literature for the homogeneous plate where the results are in good agreement. The effects of temperature field, BCs, volume fraction exponent, radius ratio, and the sector angle on the free vibrations of the FG-plate are examined.
