Free vibration analysis of functionally graded (FG) rectangular plates on two-parameter elastic foundation and vertically coupled with fluid is the objective of this work. The fluid domain is considered to be infinite in length, but it is bounded in depth and width directions, and the effects of hydrostatic pressure and free surface waves are not taken into account. The mechanical properties of the FG plates are assumed to vary continuously through the thickness direction according to a power-law distribution of the volume fraction of the constituents. The accuracy and applicability of the formulation is illustrated by comparison studies with those reported in the open literature. At the end, parametric studies are carried out to examine the impact of different parameters on the natural frequencies.
