In the initial years of development of functionally graded materials, its use is confined to heat resisting materials. But with the passage of time, their use has grown to many other fields of nature and engineering structures. In functionally graded material the material properties vary along the surface of the material. The research papers related to one-dimensional problem is solved for annular disk, cylinders and plates but few have attempted for two-dimensional. In this paper, we have developed the solutions for two-dimensional pressurized cylinder made of functionally graded material with nonlinear variation of Young’s modulus in the radial direction and its numerical analysis is done.
