Taking into account new frontiers in materials technology to improve construction materials, we investigate the bending analysis of a Functionally Graded Material (FGM) skew plate using a meshless approach based on Third-order Shear Deformation Theory (TSDT).  We assume that the material distribution is functionally graded across the thickness of the skew plate.  The proposed approach uses both mixture rule theory and the meshless method.  The mixture rule theory is used to estimate the effective material properties of the skew plate.
