Abstract

Numerical modelling and simulations are conducted on the large-amplitude dynamics of a functionally graded microcantilever with a tip-mass, additionally supported by an intermediate spring; the functionally graded microsystem is subject to a base excitation. Since one end of the microsystem is free to move, it undergoes large deformation; curvature-related nonlinearities play an important role. Taking into account this type of nonlinearity, using the Mori–Tanaka homogenisation scheme, as well as the modified couple stress theory, an energy technique is e
