JANGHORBAN, Maziar. Static and free vibration analysis of carbon nano wires based on Timoshenko beam theory using differential quadrature method. Lat. Am. j. solids struct. [online]. 2011, vol.8, n.4, pp. 463-472. ISSN 1679-7825. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1679-78252011000400006.
Static and free vibration analysis of carbon nano wires with rectangular cross section based on Timoshenko beam theory is studied in this research. Differential quadrature method (DQM) is employed to solve the governing equations. From the knowledge of author, it is the first time that free vibration of nano wires is investigated. It is also the first time that differential quadrature method is used for bending analysis of nano wires.
