The transverse shear deformation effect on the functionally graded material (FGM) circular cylindrical shells with mounted magnetostrictive layer under thermal vibration is investigated by using the generalized differential quadrature (GDQ) method. In the time dependent of displacement field, the first order shear deformation theory (FSDT) is used. The dynamic equilibrium differential equations with displacements and shear rotations of FGM shells under the magnetostrictive load and thermal load are normalized into the dynamic discrete equations. The computational solutions for thermal stresses and center deflections of magnetostrictive FGM circular cylindrical shells with four edges in simply supported boundary conditions are obtained. Some parametric effects on the FGM shells are also investigated. They are thickness of mounted magnetostrictive layer, control gain values, temperature of environment, and power law index of FGM shells.
