Static And Dynamic Problems Of Nanobeams And Nanoplates
Snehashish Chakraverty, Laxmi Behera
This book will deal with different sections associated with bending, buckling and vibration of nanobeams and nanoplates along with systematic description of handling the complexities when nanoscales are considered. The introduction includes basic ideas concerned with nanostructures, the algorithms and iterations followed in numerical methods and introduction to beam and plate theories in conjunction with nonlocal elasticity theory applied in nanostructures. Next, the investigation of nanobeams and nanoplates subjected to different sets of boundary conditions based on various nonlocal theories will be included. The varieties of physical and geometrical parameters that influence the bending, buckling and vibration mechanisms will be summarized. Finally, effect of environments such as thermal environment, Winkler–Pasternak elastic foundations and non-uniformity etc. on the buckling and vibration mechanisms will be illustrated.
