Nonlinear forced vibration of carbon nanotubes is investigated. The Euler-Bernoulli beam theory in conjunction with Eringen’s theory is considered and the thermal effect is incorporated into the formulation of the governing equation. The Winkler model is assumed for the foundation of carbon nanotube and the Galerkin method is performed to find the nonlinear ordinary differential equation of system based on the assumed boundary conditions. The multiple times scale is applied to investigate the forced vibration of carbon nanotubes. The effect of different parameters, namely, temperature variations and carbon nanotube length changes on the amplitude of oscillation of carbon nanotube are studied. It is found that the linear natural frequency of system increases by increasing the temperature and subsequently, the oscillation amplitude will decrease.
