Analysis of Pull-In Instability of Geometrically Nonlinear Microbeam Using Radial Basis Artificial Neural Network Based on Couple Stress Theory

Figure 10

Gap versus pull-in voltage for cantilever beams with a thickness of 1 μm. For length that equals 100 μm, the difference in pull-in voltage between linear and nonlinear geometry model is significant when the gap is larger than 15 μm. For a length larger than 350 μm, the pull-in voltages obtained with linear and nonlinear geometry model are identical.
