Size-dependent bending analysis of FGM nano-sinusoidal plates resting on orthotropic elastic medium
Reza Kolahchi, Ali Mohammad Moniri Bidgoli and Mohammad Mehdi Heydari

    Bending analysis of functionally graded (FG) nano-plates is investigated in the present work based on a new sinusoidal shear deformation theory. The theory accounts for sinusoidal distribution of transverse shear stress, and satisfies the free transverse shear stress conditions on the top and bottom surfaces of the plate without using shear correction factor. The material properties of nano-plate are assumed to vary according to power law distribution of the volume fraction of the constituents. The size effects are considered based on Eringen\'s nonlocal theory. Governing equations are derived using energy method and Hamilton
