The free vibration analysis of a nano-plate is investigated based on the first order shear deformation theory considering the small scale effect. The governing equations of motion are obtained using Hamilton’s principle by considering the nonlocal constitutive equations of Eringen. These coupled partial differential equations are reformulated into two new equations called the edge-zone and interior equations. Analytical solutions are obtained for a nano-plate with Levy boundary conditions. In order to find the natural frequencies of the nano-plate, the various boundary conditions at one direction of the plate should be imposed. Applying these conditions and setting the determinant of the six order coefficient matrix equal to zero, the natural frequencies of the nano-plate are evaluated. Non-dimensional frequency parameters are presented for over a wide range of nonlocal parameters and different boundary conditions. In addition, the effects of nonlocal parameter on the natural frequency of a nano-plate are discussed in details.
