Abstract: AbstractThe present study investigates nonlinear forced vibration of dielectric elastomer-based micro-beam. The nonlinear terms in beam equation are geometric and material one. Geometric nonlinearity is considered by von-Karman strain displacement relationship and the material nonlinearity is modeled with Yeoh hyper-elastic model. Galerkin and Multiple scale methods solve the governing equation. This solution that includes primary resonance, leads to frequency response, so that we depict influence of detuning…
