Analysis of Timoshenko nanobeams with a nonlocal formulation and meshless method Academic Article uri icon


  • 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.
