Abstract: Nonlocal continuum mechanics allows one to account for the small length scale effect that becomes significant when dealing with microor nanostructures. This paper deals with the lateral-torsional buckling of elastic nonlocal small-scale beams. Eringen's model is chosen for the nonlocal constitutive bendingcurvature relationship. The effect of prebuckling deformation is taken into consideration on the basis of the Kirchhoff-Clebsch theory. It is shown that the application of Eringen's model produces small-length scale terms in the nonlocal elastic lateraltorsional buckling moment of a hinged-hinged strip beam. Clearly, the non-local parameter has the effect of reducing the critical lateral-torsional buckling moment. This tendency is consistent with the one observed for the in-plane stability analysis, for the lateral buckling of a hinged-hinged axially loaded column. The lateral buckling solution can be derived from a physically motivated variational principle. © 2010 Global Science Press.
