Abstract

IN THE PRESENT STUDY, DYNAMIC PULL-IN INSTABILITY OF ELECTROSTATICALLY-ACTUATED MICRO-BEAMS IS INVESTIGATED THROUGH PROPOSING THE NONLINEAR FREQUENCY AMPLITUDE RELATIONSHIP. AN APPROXIMATE ANALYTICAL EXPRESSION OF THE FUNDAMENTAL NATURAL FREQUENCY IS PRESENTED BY MODERN ASYMPTOTIC APPROACH NAMELY ITERATION PERTURBATION METHOD (IPM). INFLUENCES OF VIBRATIONAL AMPLITUDE AS WELL AS DIFFERENT PARAMETERS ON DYNAMIC PULL-IN VOLTAGE ARE INVESTIGATED. IT IS DEMONSTRATED THAT TWO TERMS IN SERIES EXPANSIONS IS SUFFICIENT TO PRODUCE AN ACCEPTABLE SOLUTION OF THE MENTIONED MICRO-STRUCTURE. THE SIMULATIONS FROM NUMERICAL METHODS VERIFY THE VALIDITY OF THE ANALYTICAL PROCEDURE.
