In this study, the thermomechanical stability of functionally graded thin-walled cantilever pipes conveying flow and loading by compressive axial force is investigated. The governing equations of motion and boundary conditions are derived via the Hamilton's variational principle. The thin-walled structure is formulated based on Rayleigh's theory. Moreover, quasi-steady flow pressure loadings and steady surface temperature are considered and the temperature gradient through the wall thickness of the pipe is included. The partial differential equations of the pipe are transformed into a set of ordinary differential equations using the extended Galerkin method. Finally, having solved the resulting thermal-structural-fluid eigenvalue system of equations, the effects of the compressive axial force, fluid speed, fluid mass ratio, volume fraction index of functionally graded materials (FGMs), and temperature change through the thickness of the pipe on the stability boundary are investigated. Numerical comparisons are also performed with the available data in the literature and good agreement is observed.
