Free Vibration of a Carbon Nanotube-Based Mass Sensor

Payam Soltani's picture


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. 


Hi, can you give me the full-text about this article. Thank you.
