	%X In this paper, an attempt has been made to study the
effect of thermal gradation on the steady-state creep behavior of
rotating isotropic disc made of functionally graded material using
threshold stress based Sherby’s creep law. The composite discs made
of aluminum matrix reinforced with silicon carbide particulate have
been taken for analysis. The stress and strain rate distributions have
been calculated for the discs rotating at elevated temperatures having
thermal gradation. The material parameters of creep vary radially and
have been estimated by regression fit of the available experimental
data. Investigations for discs made up of linearly increasing particle
content operating under linearly decreasing temperature from inner
to outer radii have been done using von Mises’ yield criterion. The
results are displayed and compared graphically in designer friendly
format for the above said disc profile with the disc made of particle
reinforced composite operating under uniform temperature profile. It
is observed that radial and tangential stresses show minor variation
and the strain rates vary significantly in the presence of thermal
gradation as compared to disc having uniform temperature.
