In this article thermal buckling of a rectangular plate made of functionally graded materials with actuator-actuator piezoelectric layers based on neutral surface method and different Plates theory are studied. Properties of FGM plate are considered based on Reddy model. Also equilibrium and stability equations are derived from calculus variations method and Euler equations. Thermal analysis performed for two thermal loading and buckling critical temperature difference are derived for a sample plate.
