Abstract

In this paper, nonlocal Euler-Bernoulli beam theory is applied to investigate the dynamical behavior of a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) with an extra added nanoparticle. The SWCNT is assumed to be embedded on a Winkler-type elastic foundation with cantilever boundary condition. This configuration can be used as a nano-mass sensor which works on the basis of the changing the natural frequencies. The results show that the added mass causes an obvious increase in sensitivity of SWCNT-based nano-mass sensor, especially for stiff mediums, small nonlocal parameters, and stocky SWCNTs. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
