WE PRESENT A NEW NONLOCAL ELASTICITY-BASED ANALYSIS METHOD for free vibrations of functionally graded rectangular nanoplates. The introduced method allows taking into account spatial variation of the nonlocal parameter. Governing partial differential equations and associated boundary conditions are derived by employing the variational approach and applying Hamilton's principle. Displacement field is expressed in a unified way to be able to produce numerical results pertaining to three different plate theories, namely Kirchhoff, Mindlin, and third-order shear deformation theories. The equations are solved numerically by means of the generalized differential quadrature method. Numerical results are generated by considering simply-supported and cantilever nanoplates undergoing free vibrations. These findings demonstrate the influences of factors such as dimensionless plate length, plate theory, power-law index, and nonlocal parameter ratio upon vibration behavior.

A new domain-boundary element method is developed for elastodynamic analysis of functionally graded Timoshenko beams. Three governing partial differential equations of motion are derived by considering through-the-thickness variations of the physical properties. Weighted-residual forms are imposed utilizing the static fundamental solutions. These forms are then reduced to three integral equations containing domain integrals with time derivatives of unknown functions. Through domain discretization and shape ...
