... portraits and Poincaré maps. Overall, the results presented in this study show that the hybrid differential transformation and finite difference method provides a suitable means of analyzing a wide variety of common electrostatically actuated microstructures. electrostatic actuators finite difference...

..., we study singly and doubly clamped nanotubes under electrostatic actuation. The analysis emphasizes the importance of nonlinear kinematics effects in the prediction of the pull-in voltage of the device, a key design parameter. Moreover, the nonlinear behavior associated with finite kinematics (i.e...
