Abstract
Abstract The nonlinear vibration of cantilever nickel microbeams with thickness in micron level is investigated through experiment and theory. A non-contact dynamic vibration measurement system is built to test the fundamental linear frequency and the nonlinear amplitude-frequency curves near the primary resonance. Experimental result reveals the nonlinear amplitude-frequency curves exhibit a marked weak softening-type behavior as well as hysteresis behavior. To elucidate the experimental observations, a modified couple stress-based Euler-Bernoulli beam model incorporating geometric and inertial nonlinearities is established. The derived partial differential equation of motion is converted into a set of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) by employing the Galerkin method. And then, the multi-dimensional Lindstedt-Poincare (L-P) method is applied to solve these ODEs. By comparing these analytical and experimental results, a good agreement is observed. Besides, a p-version Ritz method is combined with the iteration algorithm to reveal the close similarity of the beam and plate models and to further demonstrate the size-dependency in the nonlinear regime. Meanwhile the size-dependency in nonlinear regime is demonstrated. The effects of different order nonlinear terms, length scale parameter and damping coefficients on the system are investigated. It is illustrated that the period-doubling bifurcation occurs when imposing sufficiently large excitations, and it turns into chaos with increasing the excitations continuously.

A new perspective is presented to study size-dependent elasticity experimentally within micron scale utilizing dynamic approach. The size-dependent vibration of cantilever microbeams made of nickel is studied for the first three transverse modes. The normalized natural frequency of the first mode manifests strong size effect as reported. Remarkably, the normalized natural frequencies of the second and third mode also increase to 1.9 times as the thickness of microbeams decreases from 15 to 2.1 μ...

Abstract In this paper, the superiorities of finite element method (FEM) and differential quadrature method (DQM) are blended to construct two types of beam elements corresponding to modified strain gradient -Bernoulli and Timoshenko beam models respectively. The two elements, being independent of shape functions and introducing three kinds of strain gradient effects, possess 3-DOFs (degrees of freedom) and 4-DOFs separately at each node. The Lagrange interpolation formula is employed to establi...

Abstract A standard experimental method for determining the intrinsic material length scale of modified couple stress theory is proposed based on a non-contact laser Doppler vibration measurement system. The first-order resonant frequencies of two different cantilever microbeams made of copper and titanium with thickness ranging from 15 to 2 µm are measured, respectively. The elastic size effects are obviously observed from the experimental results. The length scale parameters are obtained by fi...

ABSTRACTIn this article, we present the nonlocal, nonlinear finite element formulations for the case of nonuniform rotating laminated nano cantilever beams using the Timoshenko beam theory. The surface stress effects are also taken into consideration. Nonlocal stress resultants are obtained by employing Eringen’s nonlocal differential model. Geometric nonlinearity is taken into account by using the Green Lagrange strain tensor. Numerical solutions of nonlinear bending and free vibration are pres...

Abstract A size-dependent three-dimensional dynamic model of rotating functionally graded (FG) microbeams is developed based on the Euler–Bernoulli beam theory. A two-constituent material varying along the thickness is considered following the power law. In addition, Poisson's ratio is assumed constant in the present model. Hamilton's principle is adopted in conjunction with a modified couple stress theory to derive the governing equations with the von Karman geometric nonlinearity incorporated....

In this paper, the free vibration behaviour of bi-dimensional functionally graded (BDFG) microbeams under arbitrary boundary conditions (BCs) is studied. Based on the frame work of the modified couple stress theory and Hamilton's principle, governing equations of motion are developed for the BDFG microbeams using a quasi-3D theory. The formula then can be reduced to a higher-order beam theory (HOBT) of conventional functionally graded (FG) microbeams with the material properties varying along th...

The nonlinear mechanics of three-layered microcantilevers under base excitation is investigated numerically. Employing the modified version of the couple stress-based theory, together with the Bernoulli-Euler beam theory, the potential energy of the three-layered microsystem is derived, while accounting for size effects. Obtaining the kinetic energy, the equations of motion in the longitudinal and transverse directions are derived via Hamilton's principle. Application of the inextensibility cond...

Abstract We investigate the nonlinear dynamic behavior of an electrostatic MEMS mirror. The MEMS mirror is driven by repulsive force actuators, which avoid pull-in instability and enable large travel ranges. In parallel-plate actuators, the force on the structure is toward the substrate limiting the range of motion to the capacitor gap. Unlike parallel-plate, repulsive force actuators push the mirror away from the substrate not limiting the motion. The highly nonlinear nature of the repulsive fo...

This paper proposes weak-form differential quadrature finite elements for strain gradient functionally graded (FG) Euler–Bernoulli and Timoshenko micro-beams. The elements developed both have six degrees of freedom per node and do not require shape functions. The effective material properties are assumed to change continuously along the thickness direction. To guarantee the inter-element continuity conditions, we construct sixth- and fourth-order differential quadrature-based geometric mapping s...

Abstract We present a nonlinear Kirchhoff-Love micro-shell element based on isogeometric analysis (IGA) and couple stress theory. Higher-order NURBS functions are exploited for analyzing the strain gradient effect which automatically fulfill the higher-order continuity requirements. We express the strain gradient elastic formulation in natural curvilinear coordinates, which leads to an efficient numerical tool to examine geometric nonlinearities of thin micro-shell structures. The presented IGA ...

Abstract In this work, we propose a non-classical Kirchhoff plate model to investigate surface energy and gradient elasticity effects on the static bending and free vibration behavior of micro-plates. Gurtin-Murdoch surface elasticity theory and a single-parameter gradient elasticity theory are combined to capture three types of size effects. The equations of motion and related boundary conditions of the model are obtained by the energy variational principle. A C2-type differential quadrature fi...
