**ABSTRACT**

The study of dynamic behavior of functional graded circular plates has gained significant attention in engineering in recent time due to the vast application of the material in engineering and manufacturing industry. This study focus on the application of two-dimensional differential transform method to investigate the dynamic response of functional graded circular plates resting on two-parameter elastic foundations. However, the maximum deflection is obtained using dimensionless scheme, Laplace-Padè approximant is used to treat the small domain issue of the analytical solutions. Also, the solutions obtained are used for parametric investigation. From the results, it is found out that increase in Winkler, Pasternak and combine foundation parameters results to decrease in maximum deflection, increase in material properties of the functional graded plates leads to decrease in maximum deflection, clamped boundary condition has the lower deflection. Increasing the excitation frequency results in lower deflection. Results obtained maybe used as benchmark for validation of method using other approaches.
