In this work, the size-dependent buckling behavior of functionally graded (FG) nanobeams is investigated on the basis of the nonlocal continuum model. The material properties of FG nanobeams are assumed to vary through the thickness according to the power law. In addition, Poisson’s ratio is assumed constant in the current model. The nanobeams is modelled according to the new first order shear beam theory with small deformation and the equilibrium equations are derived using the Hamilton’s principle. The Naviertype solution is developed for simply-supported boundary conditions, and exact formulas are proposed for the buckling load. The effects of nonlocal parameter, aspect ratio, various material compositions on the stability responses of the FG nanobeams are discussed.
