In this study, a finite element method (FEM) based on the size dependent nonlocal integral elasticity theory is implemented for buckling analysis of nanoscaled beams with various boundary conditions. The method is based on the principle of total potential energy. The variations of buckling load with respect to the scaling effect parameter and to the length-to-thickness ratio are investigated. Furthermore, the effect of attenuation function type on the buckling load is examined. The results are compared with the corresponding solutions of governing stability equations which are derived in the context of nonlocal differential elasticity theory. It is found that the small scale coefficient has a noticeable effect on the buckling load of nanobeams.
