This paper studies the thermoelastic analysis of thick hollow cylinder made of two-dimensional functionally graded material (FGM) by finite element method. The FGM cylinder with finite length is simply supported and subjected to thermal and mechanical loading. The mechanical and thermal properties are graded in the radial and axial directions. The rule of mixtures and a power law distribution in terms of the volume fractions of the constituents are used to model the material properties. Temperature dependency of the material properties is taken into consideration. The temperature, displacement and stress distributions within the cylinder are found by finite element method. Variation of two-dimensional temperature and components of stresses through the cylinder are analysed. The effect of power index parameters on thermal stresses, displacement and temperature distributions are investigated.
