All mechanical, thermal and piezoelectric properties except for Poissonâ€™s ratio are taken in the form of power functions in radial direction. After solving the heat transfer equation, first a symmetric distribution of temperature is produced. The gradient of displacement in axial direction is then obtained by assuming stress equation in axial direction to be zero. The electric potential gradient is attained by charge and electric displacement equations. Substituting these terms in the equations for the dimensionless stresses in the radial and circumferential directions yield these stresses and using them in the mechanical equilibrium equation a nonhomogeneous second order differential equation is produced that by solving it, the dimensionless displacement in radial direction can be achieved. The study results for a FGP rotating hollow disk are presented graphically in the form of distributions for displacement, stresses and electrical potential.http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_514421_354aead71cf2fa7d1bccf7d1817f61aa.pdf
