Abstract
Abstract The size-dependent bending behavior of nano-beams is investigated by the modified nonlocal strain gradient elasticity theory. According to this model, the bending moment is expressed by integral convolutions of elastic flexural curvature and of its derivative with the special bi-exponential averaging kernel. It has been recently proven that such a relation is equivalent to a differential equation, involving bending moment and flexural curvature fields, equipped with natural higher-order boundary conditions of constitutive type. The associated elastostatic problem of a Bernoulli-Euler functionally graded nanobeam is formulated and solved for simple statical schemes of technical interest. An effective analytical approach is presented and exploited to establish exact expressions of nonlocal strain gradient transverse displacements of doubly clamped, cantilever, clamped-simply supported and simply supported nano-beams, detecting thus also new benchmarks for numerical analyses. Comparisons with results of literature, corresponding to selected higher-order boundary conditions are provided and discussed. The considered nonlocal strain gradient model can be advantageously adopted to characterize scale phenomena in nano-engineering problems.

Abstract Nonlocal strain gradient integral model of elasticity, extension of the fully nonlocal integral law, is widely adopted to assess size effects in nano-beams. The bending moment is sum of convolutions of elastic curvature and of its derivative with a smoothing kernel. For nanomechanical problems on unbounded domains, such as in wave propagation, the nonlocal strain gradient integral relation is equivalent to a differential law with constitutive conditions of vanishing at infinity. For bou...

Abstract The second-order integro-differential nonlocal theory of elasticity is established as an extension of the Eringen nonlocal integral model. The present research introduces an appropriate thermodynamically consistent model allowing for the higher-order strain gradient effects within the nonlocal theory of elasticity. The thermodynamic framework for third-grade nonlocal elastic materials is developed and employed to establish the Helmholtz free energy and the associated constitutive equati...

Abstract This paper comprehensively studies the nonlinear vibration of functionally graded nano-beams resting on elastic foundation and subjected to uniform temperature rise. The small-size effect, playing an essential role in the dynamical behavior of nano-beams, is considered here applying the innovative stress driven nonlocal integral model due to Romano and Barretta. The governing partial differential equations are derived from the Bernoulli鈥揈uler beam theory utilizing the von Karman strain鈥...

This study presents a modified continuum model to investigate the vibration behavior of single and multi-carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Two parameters are exploited to consider size dependence; one derived from the energy equivalent model and the other from the modified couple stress theory. The energy equivalent model, derived from the basis of molecular mechanics, is exploited to describe size-dependent material properties such as Young and shear moduli for both zigzag and armchair CNT structures. A...

This paper is focused on the initial stress affected wave dispersion in mounted graphene. To capture the size-dependent and shear deformation effects, the second-order shear deformation theory (SSDT) and nonlocal strain gradient elasticity theory are used to model the graphene. A size-dependent shear deformation plate model is established on the basis of the orthotropic constitutive equations, the nonlocal strain gradient theory as well as the SSDT. Analytical solutions are developed for the wav...

Abstract Functionally graded elastic annular nano-beams subjected to torsion are studied by a coordinate-free approach. Strain- and stress-driven integral elasticity models are formulated for investigation of structural behavior of beam-like components of nano-electro-mechanical systems (NEMS). The analysis reveals that the E ringen strain-driven fully nonlocal model cannot be used in Structural Mechanics. The stress-driven theory is instead mathematically and mechanically appropriate for nanote...

The main objective of this investigation is to study the size-dependent dynamic pull-in instability of nanobeams based on the nonlocal strain gradient theory (NLSGT) and Euler鈥揃ernoulli beam model. To this end, the partial differential equation is obtained based on the NLSGT considering the electrostatic, fringing field, and intermolecular nonlinear forces. Then, the Galerkin method and the homotopy analysis method (HAM) were employed to solve the nonlinear governing equation. To validate the pr...
