This paper applies isogeometric analysis (IGA) to simulate active control of the functionally graded material (FGM) plates by using piezoelectric material patches. This control helps to reduce the deflection of the plate under the effect of static load, which makes the structure more resistant to loading. IGA is built on the non-uniform rational basis spline (NURBS) basic function with many advantages such as: describing geometry exactly by approximating by higher order function and directly using this function to approach procedure. Furthermore, NURBS geometry has mesh flexibility and high continuity between elements, making the problem highly accurate. Three-dimensional model for plate-like structure consists of upper and lower layers made of piezoelectric materials, the middle layer is FGM. The obtained results will be verified with the published results to prove the efficiency of the proposed method for this problem. Through the obtained results, it is shown that IGA is used effectively for the active control problem by piezoelectric patches to reduce the displacement of FGM plates. The efficiency shown when using a small number of degrees of freedom but still ensuring the solution has accurate results when compared with the reference solution.
