Thermo-electro-mechanical behaviour of the nano-sized structures is analysed by the finite element method (FEM). The mechanical response of the nano-sized structures cannot be modelled with classical continuum theories due to the size effect phenomenon. The strain gradient theory with one length scale parameter has been applied to study size effect phenomenon. The coupled theory of thermo-electricity has been used together with strain gradient theory of elasticity. The governing equations have been derived and incorporated into the commercial software Comsol via weak form module. The influence of the length scale parameter on mechanical response of the structures is investigated by some numerical examples.
