N2 - In the present paper, the dynamic behaviour of a Griffith crack situated at the interface of two bonded dissimilar functionally graded piezoelectric materials (FGPMs) is considered. It is assumed that the elastic stiffness, piezoelectric constant, dielectric permittivity and mass density of the FGPMs vary continuously as an exponential function of the x and y coordinates, and that the FGPMs are under anti-plane mechanical loading and in-plane electrical loading. By using an integral transform technique the problem is reduced to four pairs of dual integral equations, which are transformed into four simultaneous Fredholm integral equations with four unknown functions. By solving the four simultaneous Fredholm integral equations numerically the effects of the material properties on the stress and electric displacement intensity factors are calculated and displayed graphically.
