In this study, a novel quasi-three dimensional hyperbolic high-order shear deformation theory (quasi-3D HHSDT) is developed for free vibration analysis of porous functionally graded plates (FGPs). There are six unknowns in the current displacement field, and no shear correction factor is required. The mechanical properties are varied continuously through the thickness of porous FG plates using a modified power law function while considering the effect of porosities on the plate’s structural integrity. Two distinct porosity distribution models are considered, including even and uneven porosity distributions. The Navier technique is employed to obtain the closed-form solutions of motion's equations. An exhaustive parametric study is presented to show the influence of the different parameters on the fundamental frequencies.
