This paper deals with dynamic stability of functionally graded (FG) nanocomposite annular plate reinforced with graphene platelets (GPLs) subjected to a periodic radial compressive load in thermal environment. On the basis of modified Halpin–Tsai micromechanics model, the effective elastic modulus of structure is estimated. Taking into consideration of the first-order shear deformation theory, the governing motion equations are obtained via the Hamilton’s principle. Afterward, the partial differential motion equations are discretized into a system of Mathieu–Hill equations by utilizing generalized differential quadrature method. Furthermore, the Bolotin’s technique is applied to determine the principle unstable zone of functionally graded graphene platelet reinforced composite (FG-GPLRC) annular plate. The accuracy and validity of current study are examined by comparing the fundamental natural frequencies of structure with those published in available literature. Eventually, to investigate the influences of number of layers, GPLs patterns and their geometric, boundary conditions, geometrical parameters of structure, static load factor, and temperature change on the DIRs of FG-GPLRC multilayer annular plate, different parametric studies are performed.
