The objective of this paper to investigate analysis of creep in the Functionally Graded Material disc with variable thickness made of aluminum alloy-based metal matrix composite containing silicon carbide particles in presence of thermal gradients in the radial direction. It has been concluded that distributions of the stress and strain rate in an anisotropic disc got affected from the thermal gradients. Thus, the presence of thermal gradients in rotating disc plays a significant role in developing the creep response.
