The dynamic characteristics of functionally graded (FG) metal foam cylindrical micro-scale shells in contact with a moving load will be analyzed thorough this paper accounting for strain-gradient size-dependency. In the material structure of a metal foam, pores can diffuse uniformly or non-uniformly. Based upon Laplace transform, the dynamical governing equations of the first-order micro-shell model can be established in a new domain. In order to go back into the time domain, an inverse Laplace transform will be required. Thus, on can express the time response or dynamic deflection of the micro-shell under moving load. In the presented results, it is easy to see the prominence of strain-gradient size-dependency, load velocity and pore dispersions in the dynamic behavior of metal foam micro-shells.
