In this paper a numerical solution is presented for free vibration analysis of sandwich cylindrical panels made of a saturated functionally graded porous (FG-porous) core and two similar homogenous face sheets. The panel is modeled based on the third order shear deformation theory (TSDT) and stress-strain relations are considered based on the linear poroelasticity theory of Biot. Natural frequencies are calculated for various boundary conditions and a parametric study is presented to study the effects of various parameters on the natural frequencies including geometrical parameters, porosity parameter, porosity distribution pattern, thickness of the porous core and compressibility of porefluid.
