This research deals with free vibration and static bending of a simply supported functionally graded (FG) plate with the porosity effect. Material properties of the plate which are related to its change are position-dependent. Governing equations of the FG plate are obtained by using the Hamilton’s principle within first-order shear deformation plate theory. In solving the problem, the Navier solution is also used. In this study, the effect of the porosity and material distribution parameters on the static and vibration responses of the FG plate is presented and discussed.
