Modeling of the behavior for Functionally Graded Beam (FGB) under thermal loading is introduced in the present work. The material properties are assumed to vary according to power function along the thickness of the beam. The effects of several parameters such as thermal expansion parameter, thermal conductivity and modulus of elasticity on the resultant axial stress of the FG beam have been studied. For thermal loading the steady state of heat conduction with power and exponentially variations through the thickness of FGB, is considered. The results obtained show that temperature distribution plays very important parameter controlling thermal resultant distribution of stresses and strains.
