Nonlinear Vibration of Nonlocal Piezoelectric Nanoplates
|Published in:||International Journal of Structural Stability and Dynamics, October 2015, n. 8, v. 15|
This paper presents an analytical study on the nonlinear vibration of rectangular piezoelectric nanoplates resting on the Winkler foundation. The piezoelectric nanoplate is assumed to be simply supported on all four edges and is subjected to an external electric voltage and a uniform temperature rise. Based on von Karman nonlinear strain–displacement relations and the nonlocal constitutive relations, the nonlinear governing equations and corresponding boundary conditions are derived by employing Hamilton's principle. The Galerkin method is used to obtain the nonlinear ordinary equation, which is then solved by the direct integration method. An extensive parametric study is conducted to examine the effects of the nonlocal parameter, external electric voltage, temperature rise and Winkler parameter on the nonlinear vibration characteristics of piezoelectric nanoplates.
