In this article, static analysis of functionally graded, anisotropic and linear magneto-electro-elastic plates have been carried out by semi-analytical finite element method. A series solution is assumed in the plane of the plate and finite element procedure is adopted across the thickness of the plate such a way that the three-dimensional character of the solution is preserved. The finite element model is derived based on constitutive equation of piezomagnetic material accounting for coupling between elasticity, electric and magnetic effect. The present finite element is modeled with displacement components, electric potential and magnetic potential as nodal degree of freedom. The other fields are calculated by post-computation through constitutive equation. The functionally graded material is assumed to be exponential in the thickness direction. The numerical results obtained by the present model are in good agreement with available functionally graded three-dimensional exact benchmark solutions given by Pan and Han [Pan, E., Han, F., in press. Green's function for transversely isotropic piezoelectric functionally graded multilayered half spaces. Int. J. Solids Struct.]. Numerical study includes the influence of the different exponential factor, magneto-electro-elastic properties and effect of mechanical and electric type of loading on induced magneto-electro-elastic fields. In addition further study has been carried out on non-homogeneous transversely isotropic FGM magneto-electro-elastic plate available in the literature [Chen, W.Q., Lee, K.Y., Ding, H.J., 2005. On free vibration of non-homogeneous transversely isotropic magneto-electro-elastic plates].
