Abstract Based on Reddy's third-order shear deformation plate theory, the nonlinear dynamic response and vibration of imperfect functionally graded carbon nanotube-reinforced composite (FG-CNTRC) plates on elastic foundations subjected to dynamic loads and temperature are presented. The plates are reinforced by single-walled carbon nanotubes which vary according to the linear functions of the plate thickness. The plate's effective material properties are assumed to depend on temperature and estimated through the rule of mixture. By applying the Airy stress function, Galerkin method and fourth-order Runge-Kutta method, nonlinear dynamic response and natural frequency for imperfect FG-CNTRC plates are determined. In numerical results, the influences of geometrical parameters, elastic foundations, initial imperfection, dynamic loads, temperature increment, and nanotube volume fraction on the nonlinear vibration of FG-CNTRC plates are investigated. The obtained results are validated by comparing with those of other authors.
