Weak Formulation of Finite Element Method for Nonlocal Beams Using Additional Boundary Conditions
The finite element method for the Euler-Bernoulli beam model is applied for the bending analyzes of micro/nanobeams with the additional boundary conditions. Nonlocal stiffness matrix and force vector is calculated to solve beam bending problems. A qualitative discussion is given on this calculation process. The study contains two major parts, namely, finite element modeling of nonlocal beams with the additional boundary conditions and nonlocal theory based approach for predicting behavior of Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs). The nonlocal solutions are compared with their classical counterparts. The results illustrate that the deflection and bending moment of nonlocal beam depend on the small scale parameters and also on the boundary condition of the beam and the applied load.
