Abstract     [Full Text]
    Thermal buckling behavior of porous functionally graded nanobeam integrated with piezoelectric sensor and actuator based on the nonlocal higher-order shear deformation beam theory is investigated for the first time. Its material properties are assumed to be temperature-dependent and varying along the thickness direction according to the modified power-law rule. Note that the porosity with even type is considered herein. The equations of motion are obtained through Hamilton\'s principle. The influences of several parameters (such as type of temperature distribution, external electric voltage, material composition, porosity, small-scale effect, Ker foundation parameters, and beam thickness) on the thermal buckling of FG nanobeam are investigated in detail.
