11. Summary of the new findings of the thesis:
1) The thesis uses an analytical approach to investigate nonlinear stability including the buckling and postbuckling behaviors of structures made of functionally graded materials (FGM) in case of temperature independent material properties. In addition, the thesis employs an iterative algorithm to determine buckling loads and postbuckling curves when material properties are temperature dependent.
2) The thesis investigates the nonlinear stability of FGM rectangular plates subjected to mechanical, thermal and combined thermomechanical loads with and without temperature dependence of material properties and taking into account initial geometrical imperfection of the plates.
3) The thesis investigates the nonlinear stability of FGM cylindrical panels subjected to mechanical, thermal and thermomechanical loads by using the classical shell theory and including the initial geometrical imperfection of the panels.
4)    The thesis studies the nonlinear stability of FGM circular cylindrical shells by using both the classical shell theory and improved Donnell shell theory.
 5)    The thesis uses the classical shell theory to investigate axisymmetric nonlinear response of FGM shallow spherical shells taking temperature effects into consideration.
6)   The thesis analyzes the effects of material and geometrical properties, boundary conditions, temperature dependence of material properties, imperfection, temperature conditions on the mechanical, thermal and thermomechanical nonlinear stability of FGM plate and shell structures.
12. Practical applicability, if any:
           Functionally graded materials are novel composite materials made from mixture of ceramic and metal constituents have capacity of high performance temperature resistance and are widely used in structural components of aircraft, missile, aerospace vehicles and nuclear plants. This thesis, which investigates the buckling and postbuckling behaviors of common engineering structures such as plates, shells and panels made of functionally graded materials, provides scientific predictions for designers of these structures. In addition, obtained results of the thesis may be used as useful reference for calculation, safe and optimal design for nuclear power factories which will be built in Vietnam in near future.
 13. Further research directions, if any:
         After this, we will study nolinear static stability of FGM structures taking into account the effects of elastic foundations, higher order shear deformation, non-steady temperature conduction and the complexity in the geometry of structures. Furthermore, we will investigate dynamic response including dynamic stability and vibration of FGM plate, shell and panel structures.
