The present article manifests the transference of horizontally polarised shear (SH) wave in an aluminium (Al) plate overlying by a Functionally Graded Piezoelectric Material (FGPM) layer. The separation of variables method is adopted to find the solution. The phase velocity of the wave is calculated for both electrically open and short cases. The significant influence of various affecting parameters on the phase velocity curve is demonstrated through graphs. Findings may be applicable in the structural health monitoring, surface acoustic wave (SAW) devices and ultrasonic inspection techniques.
