Analysis of Timoshenko nanobeams with a nonlocal formulation and meshless method
Additional Document Info
The nonlocal elasticity theory of Eringen is used to study bending, buckling and free vibration of Timoshenko nanobeams. A meshless method is used to obtain numerical solutions. Results are compared with available analytical solutions. Two different collocation techniques, global (RBF) and local (RBF-FD), are used with multi-quadrics radial basis functions. 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
