Abstract

Thermo-mechanical buckling problem of functionally graded (FG) nanoplates supported by Pasternak elastic foundation subjected to linearly/non-linearly varying loadings is analyzed via the nonlocal elasticity theory. Two opposite edges of the nanoplate are subjected to the linear and nonlinear varying normal stresses. Elastic properties of nanoplate change in spatial coordinate based on a power-law form. Eringen's nonlocal elasticity theory is exploited to describe the size dependency of nanoplate. The equations of motion for an embedded FG nanoplate are derived by using Hamilton principle and Eringen's nonlocal elasticity theory. Navier's method is presented to explore the influences of elastic foundation parameters, various thermal environments, small scale parameter, material composition and the plate geometrical parameters on buckling characteristics of the FG nanoplate. According to the numerical results, it is revealed that the proposed modeling can provide accurate results of the FG nanoplates as compared some cases in the literature. Numerical examples show that the buckling characteristics of the FG nanoplate are related to the material composition, temperature distribution, elastic foundation parameters, nonlocality effects and the different loading conditions.
