Functionally graded (FG) materials have shown excellent thermoelastic and creep performance, being considered as excellent materials for cylindrical shells subjected to thermo-mechanical loads. This review provides a detailed account of thermoelastic and creep properties of FG cylindrical shells. A review of governing equations on properties of FG materials as well as thermoelastic response of materials is provided. In depth analysis of the works carried out on the thermoelastic and creep performance of FG cylindrical under different thermal and mechanical loads (such as internal/external pressure, axial loading, etc.) is then conducted. Results obtained so far indicate the superior creep performance of FG cylindrical shells. Although many studies have been carried on thermoelastic response of FG cylindrical shells, their creep properties under different loading is yet to be extended and is a subject of interest for the future researches.
