In this study, a new peridynamic Mindlin plate formulation is presented which is suitable for the analysis of functionally graded materials. The governing equations of peridynamic formulation are obtained by using Euler-Lagrange equations in conjunction with Taylor’s expansion. To validate the new formulation, three different numerical benchmark problems are considered for a Mindlin plate subjected to simply supported, fully clamped and mixed (clamped-simply supported) boundary conditions. Peridynamic results are compared against results from finite element analysis and a good agreement is observed between the two methods.
